  • Brilliant painting exhibition. Very helpful and friendly staff. Nice cafe and gardens. Excellent in every way. Go see the paintings!
  • Excellent display of old favourites and rarer treasures from the preeminent Newlyn artist. A beautiful place to be taking lunch in thid gorgeous weather.
  • Great physical and social history of the area in the museum plus a very nice cafe with superb sandwiches.
