Dartmouth Museum

Dartmouth Museum is a small but fascinating museum occupying part of the historic Butterwalk, a terrace of rich merchants’ houses built in 1640.

The museum displays an extensive collection of artefacts, models, paintings and photographs relating to Dartmouth and the surrounding district, with special attention to the maritime history.

Three sons of Dartmouth are remembered: Thomas Newcomen, whose practical steam engine ushered in the Industrial Revolution; William Henley, a polymath ironmonger whose collection is displayed in a re-created Victorian study and Theodore Veale, the VC holder who showed outstanding bravery at the Battle of the Somme.
