Step into the past: history of the fishing port of Brixham, 19thC ships' instruments and tools, models, memorabilia, social history, costume and lace, also local regalia, transport room settings and audio displays and local archaeology.
The Brixham Heritage Museum and History Society was founded in 1958 for the purpose of recording, saving and displaying the heritage of the historic town and fishing port.
The spacious Maritime Gallery celebrates Brixham's illustrious seafaring past, and includes displays of shipwrights' tools, sailmaking navigation aids and models of famous local fishing vessels.
