Would have hoped a town museum would be more focused on the town than anything else. The first room (about the town) was interesting, just pretty uncohesive and there were a lot of things there with no explanation to the importance or relevance to the town.
There was then a room of African collections, which is a bit strange for a small museum in north Devon. Again, not much explaining the history of these items.
Very disappointed that whilst we were there, a meeting of sorts was being held in the last room (the one we were most interested in seeing) so we felt we couldn't go in there.
All in all, I think the museum could be improved by being more cohesive, perhaps following a timeline and even telling the story of who's collection it is? And definitely with more information on what the objects actually are.
