South Molton MuseumSouth Molton Category Museums & Galleries, Historic Sites
South Molton Museum is located on the ground floor of the handsome Guildhall, completed in 1743 and situated on the south side of the town square. The Museum is managed by South Molton Town Council and volunteers, and engages with the local community to show the social history of the town and its evolution through the centuries.
Collections reflecting the life and times of this historic market town and the surrounding district include local archaeological finds, agricultural implements, items of domestic interest, textiles, documents, maps, toys, and much else besides.
In addition to the permanent exhibits there is an eclectic and changing programme of displays; please check the Exhibitions page for details.
Many people are fascinated by their family history, and there is a service point and someone to help and guide you through the process by appointment only on Mondays and Tuesdays.
