This museum is always changing!
We focus on the history of Newton Abbot & The Great Western Railway.
(Find out about the Heart of Oak conservation project on the right hand menu bar.)
The museum exhibitions are arranged in a series of small rooms,
which includes the GWR Room.
Each year we add a new exhibition, retaining some past exhibitions and renewing others.
There is always something new to see and learn.
2013 'Inside Out' Exhibition-The Artchitects & Architecture of the town
This year we take a look at the architecture and the architects who
helped to develop the town. We hope that this exhibition will encourage
you to become more aware of the variety and elegance of the architecture that still exists within the town today!
Three new trails/walks have been developed to help you do this:-
For families exploring the town and hills of Newton Abbot we have two new trails:-
Medieval & Tudor Newton Abbot-Walk One
17th Century Newton Abbot-Walk Two
These walks encourage young observant walkers to explore their town & its history with their families!
Even more walks are being developed and will be available soon!
For those particularly interested in architecture we now also have:-
Noticing Newton Abbot! - Walk 1- Devon Square
with even more architectural walks to follow soon!
For any of these 4 Town Trails/Walks ask at the museum reception desk.
For our highly popular original Town Trail see below for more information!
A small donation towards the printing costs of the leaflets would be much appreciated!
