Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter Reviews

  • Really great museum, I took a 5&9 year old with me and we spent around 4 hours hear without one single ' I'm board' which is a raraty. Plenty to look at and get involved with. The explorer packs add another dimension to a already fun day out. They contain a few extra bits to help keep the kids interested. Artifacts are from the Devon area and are well displayed with information about each piece. There is a large taxidermy section which some may not enjoy. The building is very old but the inside gives a modern feel. There are plenty of toilets.

  • The museum itself was lovely. Lots of things to see and different, interesting exhibits. However our visit was soured somewhat by the attitude of some of the staff members. Firstly we were approached when trying to give our young child a drink. I understood that drinks weren't allowed in the exhibits but we were sat by the children's play area so hardly causing any issue. But they were adamant that the drink (a bottled juice drink with a sports cap) had to be put away. Secondly when walking through the art gallery out 1 year old daughter was make some noise. She had discovered that the room was echoey and found it funny to woo every so often. A lot of people were smiling because it was cute however a member of staff in the room felt the need to rudely shush a 1 year old child. Appalling behaviour if you ask me and put a sour note on what was otherwise a pleasant day's activity

  • My husband And I popped in from the rain. Great experience. We had a cup of coffee in the cafe. They had many gluten free and dairy free cakes/products available. Recommend

  • The Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) is a modest sized museum, which is good entertainment for a morning or afternoon. You would probably struggle to spend the whole day there unless you want to go round twice! They have fun activities for children throughout the exhibitions and rooms, although some are looking a little tired from everyday use. There's also a really good local history exhibition showing the evolution of Exeter and the surrounding area. The cafe is as you would expect for a small museum, with a limited range of warm food. Overall, we were very impressed and would recommend for all ages.

  • One of the best medium sized museums I have been to in the uk. The permanent displays are beautifully presented in modern and spacious viewing galleries. Lifts to all floors with clear signage and spacious walkways. The staff are very helpful and willing to advise when prompted. A value for money cafe with plenty of seating. The gallery has different exhibitions on a regular basis which are very well curated.
