Dedicated to the history and heritage of the town of Brixham in Devon



Our Schools Programs - Archaeology

Brixham Heritage Museum can give children the opportunity to handle genuine historical artefacts, whilst learning about the real work involved in archaeology from those who have first-hand experience. The Museum keeps in its collection a vast amount of authentic pieces from Brixham’s rich past, which can be experienced further in a real archaeological dig at Berry Head, with the agreement of the Coast and Countryside Trust.
