The Teign Heritage Centre, home to the Teignmouth and Shaldon Museum, opened its doors to the public on 28th May 2011, with 2018 seeing the 40th Anniversary season.
The Centre offers local residents and visitors the opportunity to explore the fascinating heritage of the area, as well as attend events, concerts and workshops.
The original Museum, housed in an 18th-century building, was granted to the Teignmouth Historical Society to set up a Museum and this was opened in July 1978. We, therefore, celebrated our 40th anniversary year in 2018.
The building was given a £1.1m transformation and annexe, thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the CABE/ Sea Change Initiative, the Foyle Foundation, Viridor, English Heritage and many other funders, supporters and individual donors.
In June 2012 it was awarded the top accolade in the Best Commercial/Public Building category for its interesting and sustainable design by Devon Building Control Partnership.
