Lots of things to see and some interactive activities. Picture boards of the flora and fauna. Helpful, knowledgable staff. Well worth a visit if you want to know more about the Burrows and what you might see there.

Small attractive museum about the countryside round braunton. Informative displays. Lots of child engagement which goes beyond just pressing buttons eg large screen microscope, matching games, videos, fish tank. Friendly staff. Well worth an hour if you're in the area

Very comprehensive range of booklets and leaflets on "things to do" locally. Staff are clued up on advice and local knowledge. Be sure to get some booklets on wildlife identification, they have a very good stock and I got most of my collection here.
