We need your help!

The Museum of Dartmoor Life is currently conducting a public consultation to find out what members of the generally public think of the museum. Do you like our displays? Think we need better lights? Do you want more events? Let us know, any feedback positive and negative will be gratefully received. Your feedback is very valuable and helps us to increase visitor enjoyment and to make your experience more interesting.

Surveys can be completed - online, just follow this link surveymonkey.com/s/2KB25JD

Surveys need to be completed by the 1st of December.

Thanks for your help!


So many exciting things for all ages have been happening at the museum over the past few months.

Recently we held a spooky Halloween Fun Day. Children got to hear scary stories and got to make their own creepy bats.

We held a Wine and Wisdom evening in October in aid of the museum, which went down well.

The Camera Club also held a display in the John Young Gallery in September. Beautiful pictures were up on display. (If you want to have your own display up in the museum or are looking for a space to work with a group, why not contact the museum? Details of the John Young Gallery and how to book are on the museum's website at http://www.museumofdartmoorlife.co.uk/gallery_for_hire.html).

The museum also partnered with Okehampton Rotary Club to produce a time capsule. The capsule is on display in the museum and will stay there for another 50 years! The time capsule conceals our views and values in the 21st Century and provides a way to educated the future, as well as reminding ourselves of the life and society we now live in.
The museum is also participating in Cards for Good Causes again this year. Cards are available for purchase in the museum reception and will be available for sale until the 15th of December. Money from cards sold goes to different charities.
