Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter

Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter

Exeter's RAMM - Museum of the Year 2012

Heart of Devon Museums & Galleries

The Heart of Devon has a wonderful mix of museums and galleries, many of which are free to visit. Exhibitions range from displays of local Devon life through history, to major national touring exhibitions.

Museums in Exeter include the excellent Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery, re-opened at the end of 2011 after a major refurbishment. The new museum is home to stunning displays and prestigious loans and exhibitions from national partners. Families will also love nearby St Nicholas Priory, a histoic Benedictine Priory now presented as an Elizabethan town house, and the medieval Exeter's Underground Passages beneath the city's streets!

Film buffs should head to the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, with an internationally renowned collection ranging from shadow puppets to the golden age of Hollywood! A little further afield, the historic estuary town of Topsham is home to The Art Room Topsham, an independent gallery on the historic quay, and Topsham Museum, housed in one of a group of late 17th century buildings overlooking the Exe Estuary.

Near Exeter, the National Trust Killerton House exhibits one of the best collections of historical fashion in the south west, and the beautiful Fursdon House is one of Devon's oldest family homes, open to the public on specific afternoons between Easter and the end of August.

The Devon Guild of Craftsmen in Bovey Tracey holds fascinating exhibitions of arts and crafts, with related events throughout the year, or visit the innovative Centre for Contemporary Art & the Natural World at Haldon Forest Park, an arts and ecology centre which uses the arts to show ways of living more sustainably within nature. Visit our Arts & Crafts page for more opportunities to enjoy arts and crafts in Devon.
