About us

  Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life was started by a few energetic individuals concerned that many of the objects and much of the information about Tiverton and the surrounding areas would be lost if nothing was done to collect them in the rapidly changing post-war world.

The museum is an independent charitable trust. The museum receives grants from Mid Devon District Council and Tiverton Town Council that contribute towards our running costs, although we remain dependent upon other grants, donations, fundraising and income generated through admission and shop sales.  

We have been delighted to win a number of awards in the past few years, including: 


Museum Collections

The museum collections continue to grow thanks to the generous donations of objects, photographs and archives that come from local people. The museum's Collections Development Policy guides what we can and can't accept into the collection.
