Supporting the Museum that Barnstaple deserves

About Us

Barnstaple and North Devon Museum Development Trust

The Development Trust was established as the Charitable arm of the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon which is owned and managed by North Devon District


The Trust supports the Museum’s educational aims by raising funds and providing practical help.  The immediate goal is to help in achieving the proposed Longbridge Wing extension which will house social history collections and provide a welcoming reception, cafe and community areas.


Other  proposed work of the Trust includes the  acquisition of specimen, artefacts and archive material to enhance the collections.  It also hopes to assist in the development of events and displays to further the public understanding of North Devon’s past and present.


The Trust also acts as the umbrella body for the Museum Friends group.  Officially called the Friends of the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon, this group is a membership organization which helps safeguard the future of the North Devon’s Culture and Heritage for future generations.  Members receive invitations to special events and a regular newsletter.
