  • This place is amazing - a "secret" inventor, history of shipwrecks, WW11 D Day plans and memorabillia, art exhibition - we needed much more time so we will be back!  more »
  • Pleasant couple of hours in the Heritage Centre and two art galleries. The Cafe is good value for money with tables that overlook the canal and beach. Worth spending time here if you don't know the ar...  more »

  • This is a treasure trove of interesting facts. The museum section is very interesting and FREE. My young son loves looking at the steam locomotive section and the hands on displays. I like the links to the local area. The cafe is lovely and has great views across the beach from the conservatory though there are only about 6 or 7 tables altogether. In the good weather you can sit out on the decking area. There is a lift to access the upstairs for wheelchairs and buggies though you may have to ask staff to open the door to access the museum section if you are using a wheelchair or buggy. A good place to visit. I would definitely recommend a visit.
  • There is a great conservatory area and outdoor seating too. There is a good selection of lunch dishes and cakes to go with a coffee. Prompt service and great views!
  • The restaurant serves nice coffee and cakes and has a good view of the river and sea lock. The museum has changing exhibitions and is really good and free. The staff are friendly. Recommended.
  • We enjoyed finding out more about the great Cornish Engineers, in particular Sir Goldsworthy Gurney, whose ideas contributed greatly to the great Victorian age of steam. There is also an interesting section on the coast, ships and shipwrecks. The cafe was very pleasant with a good range of gluten free cakes to compliment the regular fare. It has a good selection of books about Cornwall too. We spent about 90 minutes in the centre in total.
  • Very nice, took in the views with a coffee, museum was very interesting,lots of interactive displays for children also.
