Kingsbridge Cookworthy Museum

History Revisited

Latest News

We are all busy spring cleaning and getting the exhibitions ready to re-open on Monday 26th March. NEW display 'Margaret Lorenz: a Head of her Time'; updated with new material 'William Cookworthy' Pioneer of Porcelain'; and lots more to see and do in your local museum. 




How To Find Us


The Museum is run by an independent charitable trust, and its operations are not funded by national nor local authority. It therefore has to make a charge for admission and services.

Admission to the Museum in 2018 is £3.00 for adults and £2.50 for concessions. FREE ADMISSION for children under 16.

Opening Hours

The Museum galleries are open Monday to Saturday in season, 10.30am to 5.00pm (4.00pm in October).

The Resource Centre is open Monday to Thursday 10.00am to 12.00 noon and until 3.00pm on Wednesdays, except for the Christmas period. Other times can be arranged by appointment.

Directions to the museum and local map

Parking: from August 2017 the charges in the Fore Street car park have been reduced to £1.00 for four hours, which gives you time to explore the top of the town AND visit the museum.
