Merchant's House Museum

Plymouth Wide

From Elizabethan privateers to four mini museums in one, the Merchant's House has an interesting history.

Today, the Merchant's House is the largest and finest surviving example of a 16th/early 17th century residence in Plymouth. The house is divided into seven rooms, each one with its own central theme and the displays examine aspects of Plymouth's past history, from transport and trade to the effects of the Second World War.

The social history of a bygone age is revealed with a contrast between the rich and poor, whilst the Victorian school room reflects the growth of mass education in the last century.
