What’s happening at the Museum
Come and see our featured display of angling heritage and many other items on view.
Torrington Museum is a small friendly free museum, run entirely by volunteers, which is housed in the centre of Great Torrington next to the market entrance. The museum possesses many fascinating exhibits and reflects the diverse history of this ancient market town.
Torrington museum obtained a grant of £20,000 from Leader 4 as a "Start-up Project" grant, which has enabled the museum to open all of 14 South Street and the Market House with all our artefacts laid out on storage units, for all the community to be able to come and view them. We have also been able to display quite a number of our Mayfair dresses and costumes on new dummies, and have acquired extra Marley Haley boards for displaying our photographs, chairs and tables and a computer programme for cataloguing all our artefacts and archive material.
