This is a great local museum full of its own legacy but with excellent worldwide interest. Exeter info is terrific and the ability to walk straight out on the Roman wall is fabulous. Good Cafe and toilets, exceptional shop

I had 15 minutes in the city to visit the museum. Nice and worth to spend more time in it. I will visit again and assign about 2 hours to visit the museum

This is an excellent museum, really well set out and a delight to walk around. We only had a short time so we had a whistle stop tour but it was amazing and would love to visit again. It was also free !

Stopped in to get out of the sun and was glad I did. Spent a couple of hours wandering around the exhibits which are wide ranging. The museum is well put together and it's easy to navigate.

Lovely museum. The area of the museum filled with local history was very interesting. I loved seeing all the preserved animals, especially the polar bear (my favourite). The walk outside to along the city walls was lovely in the weather we had. Although the museum...More
