UK»England»Devon»Valiant Soldier Museum

Valiant Soldier Museum: A village inn for two centuries, The Valiant Soldier closed in the 1960's - and time stood still. Furniture, pub artifacts and domestic items remained where they were when the last customer left. See the period bars of a working man's pub during the 40's and 50's, the kitchen portraying domestic life and a parlour, bedroom, bathroom and re-creation of the original attic. In addition, the site contains fascinating displays about the project, showing how local people saved the Valiant Soldier, and a lively exhibition telling the story of Buckfastleigh. While the old pub retains the atmosphere of the 1940s and 50s, theres hi-tech video and computer presentations, plus interactive exhibits and old pub games.
