Brixham Heritage Museum
Devon TQ5 9SQ
The Brixham Heritage Museum is located at Bolton Cross in the centre of Brixham. The distinctive red brick building, next door to the old Town Hall, is the former Police Station and Sergeant's House, built in 1902.
The Museum is the repository of everything to do with Brixham’s history. There are displays on the Napoleonic Forts, the Brixham All Saints Church vicar, Rev. Lyte (author of the hymn ‘Abide with Me’), smuggling, Mayflower II, the lifeboat, maritime models, nautical equipment and odd things brought up by Brixham’s trawlers.
This is a true social history museum, full of quirky and well used everyday objects but it also recounts the important part Brixham has played in world history. Well worth visiting.
