Yes it's not a big museum and yes it's not that cheep a visit. But it is reasonably interesting and informative. Worth a visit if you are visiting the Inn.

Worth a visit if you are in the area. Friendly staff provide plenty of information in addition to what is already available in the museum.

The museum is lovely and well worth a visit. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend if passing. Refreshments are available at the Jamaica Inn across the road.

Worth a visit. It is nice, informative but is small. It tells you everything you need to know about smugglers and the history of the Jamaica Inn.
