Excellent place to bring the grandchildren especially during inclement weather. The cafe is exceedingly helpful . All floors readily accessible. Most interesting show is the Seaton Hoard.

Nice mixture of exhibits, interesting to learn about wartime Exeter, and got to speak to a veteran. Good visit. Free Entry.

Quite a decent show with varied exhibits. Unfortunately, quite a few of the galleries were closed for renovation or upgradation at the time of my visit. Good place to take children; lots of exhibits where they'll enjoy.
