Coastal Communities Museum
Our volunteer-run museum brings 10,000 years of heritage and culture of the local towns and villages of this coastal area alive with exhibits and activities for all ages from pre-school to pensioners.
Exhibits and exhibition boards are regularly changed to reflect a new theme or a different focus – check out the www.coastalmuseum.org for what’s on – or drop in and see for yourself. ‘Treasured Memories’ (opens on 1 April 2017). It will delight the eye and take you on a trip down memory lane. Find out what inspired Robert Louis Stevenson, this maker of myths and teller of tales. See the local places that enabled him to recreate the sights, sounds and smells of this coastal area in his stories.
The museum is situated above the town library, but accessed by a lift or stairs. It is within a few minutes walk of the town centre and in easy reach of local car parks. Whether you are a local or a visitor to the Coastal Communities Museum, “your curiosity is welcome”.
