Salcombe Maritime Museum

South Hams

A treasure trove of models, paintings, photographs and artefacts which tell the story of Salcombe's links with ships and the sea from ancient times to the Second World War.

There is plenty to amuse and engage younger visitors including tales of local smugglers and pirates as well as dressing-up box in the ‘young sailors corner'.

The museum has a unique gallery of paintings depicting the famed racing fruit schooners built in Salcombe during the 19th century.

Finally don't miss the sea-bed treasures recovered by divers from the hundreds of shipwrecks that line our coast.
