Welcome to the website of the Dartmoor District Museum.
The Museum was opened in 1993, utilising a central field-limestone building that served many purposes since it was built in the 1870’s: coach-house and stables, blacksmith shop, carriage-maker’s, motor-repair business, rendering house, and hardware store. Extensions added in the 1950’s had histories of their own as a bank, barber’s shop and forestry office.
Proprietors Michael Greenham and Elly Colley are keen to preserve the object, written, oral, and pictorial history of the Dartmoor district, and thank the many community members who have supported them in this endeavour to date.
We hope you enjoy your virtual visit, and look forward to a real tour at some time!
