Great Torrington Museum is a friendly, free museum run entirely by volunteers in the centre of Great Torrington, next to the Pannier Market entrance in the centre of the town. The museum has a remarkable collection of fascinating objects and reflects the diverse history of this ancient market town including exhibits about Glove Making, the Rolle Canal, Pottery and local inventor Thomas Fowler’s early computer.
Most exhibits have been donated by local people over the years, resulting a wonderfully eclectic collection of objects and documents which really bring Torrington’s people and stories to life.
The Museum is open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays between 11am and 4pm (last admission at 3.30pm) until the end of October.
