  • Fascinating museum, jam packed with photos, artifacts & historical information about Polperro & its fishing history, local families & smuggling history.  more »
  • The museum is well presented. The admission price modest. The displays tell interesting stories. We spent a very pleasant hour or so looking around.  more »
  • Not a very big museum, but considering its position, you wouldn't expect it to be. But full of interesting facts and relics from Cornwall's shady past. Well worth a visit.  more »

  • Picturesque harbour town with a little beach and boat trips. There is no public parking at the harbour. But a large pay and display carpark that is 750 metres inland. It is one road that leads down to the harbour with plenty of shops and cafes but if you don't want to walk there is a shuttle bus service from the car park down to the harbour and back again 😀
  • My mother, father and I moved to Polperro in 1947 when I was 7 years old I re-visited in July this year and everything is as I remember it, it is just as if 'time has stood still for all these years.' I visited the Museum and talked to the lady there, and still remembered some of the families names, I am visiting again in a few weeks. take care of it, it is one of Englands treasures
  • Beautiful - great info on historical smugglers and knitting
  • Beautiful little town with great little roads and a really nice beach with amazing views
  • A must.. if you are in the area
