Join us at Ilfracombe Museum for a fun packed free family friendly open day on Sunday July 4th 11am – 4pm

We are celebrating our Stay Curious project and want to share with you all that is weird and wonderful in the Museum. Bring the whole family. Children, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends are all welcome!

There are free goody bags to take away, and weird craft sessions to enjoy – make a two headed kitten or a crazy soft snake!  See our fantastic new creepy crawly art installation, full of bugs and butterflies created by artist Mandi McCormack and pupils from Ilfracombe Junior School.

Be astonished by our Curious Creature Specimens in a jar made by local young people. Bring your Nature Notebook and get it stamped; explore inside the museum and make notes about your favourite weird and wonderful things that you discover.

Visit the Butterfly Design exhibition at the Landmark Theatre showing beautiful butterflies created by students from Ilfracombe Academy.

Entry to the Museum is free, but must be pre-booked to manage numbers. To book a slot for July 4th go to our website page at
