Brixham Heritage Museum


Brixham Museum & History Society was founded in December 1957 to record, preserve and promote the story of the historic town and its people.

In 1999, the members voted to change the Society name to include the word 'Heritage'.

Presentations and activity sessions are provided for schools and youth organisations and we have also worked closely with Adult Education services. The museum has provided placements within the Torbay Schools Work Experience
