  • Fantastic museum that is free to enter! And its run by lovely volunteers. Fascinating local history, and the children loved doing the owl trail. We didn't have any, but there were cakes & refreshments for sale downstairs
  • Owned by the National Trust and I think run by the local council. It is free to enter and is full of interesting artifacts on three floors. The staff on duty were polite, friendly and helpful. They even started up a antique large music box for me to listen. A great visit for a rainy day.
  • Great place. Was staffed by very friendly happy positive people. Kept the kids entertained by finding hidden owls in the exhibts.
  • A small but interwting museum. Very jolly welcoming staff. The exhibits were well laid out to tell the story of the local area.
  • A museum full of information on the area over the years. Railways, clothing and WW2 to name a few with a lady on the door who understands the Cornish language.
