Please ask one of our volunteers for advice should you need to access this information.  However we are delighted to share the exciting news that Axminster Heritage Centre is preparing to welcome its visitors back when it reopens on Saturday 1 August, between 10am – 4pm! From Tuesday 4 August the opening hours below will apply:

Tuesday – 10:00am – 4:00pm

Thursday – 10:00am – 4:00pm

Saturday – 10:00am – 1:00pm


We have been following government and museum sector guidelines closely on reopening and are at present preparing the building to be COVID-19 compliant. Our priority is to provide a safe environment for both our visitors and volunteers and as such there will be some changes in the visitor experience such as a queuing system and a one-way route through the exhibitions.

Our interactives will not be operating in the displays but you will still be able to access the audios and videos in the gallery using your own mobile device and phones. More about this and how to download the QR code readers will be available on our website and Facebook page nearer our opening.

These changes will allow us to ensure that the Heritage Centre remains a safe, friendly and informative place for everyone.

For further information please speak to Centre Manager, Nigel Sadler on 01297 639884 (Thursday/Friday) or email: Don’t forget to check out our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter too!

Thank you all for your continued support during this difficult and challenging time and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Axminster Heritage Centre!
