The Exmouth Museum has now closed for the winter after a successful year.

The museum managed to buy its building in Sheppards Row earlier this year thanks to a council grant, local support, and other contributions.

It was visited on 15 November by the Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton Explorer Scouts - who reportedly impressed the museum staff with their level of interest and questions.

A spokesperson for the museum said: "Our visitor numbers are up for which we are so grateful coming on the back of what has been a terribly difficult time for everyone so a big thank you to you all.

"If any local groups would like to arrange a visit we would be delighted to hear from you and look forward to welcoming you.

"The museum is a wonderfully fascinating place packed with a wealth of exhibits and information on the history of the town and its people.

"The museum is now carrying out various improvements for 2022 so watch this space!"
