It is free and wonderful. Changing exhibitions all the time. Brilliant works of legendary Falmouth artist, and my art teacher, Peter Markey, currently on display alongside other exceptional artists.

Been every time we visit Falmouth, This time they have a very hands on toys and automata exhibition which would be great for families with young children. They also have a few selected paintings with the reason each person connected with the gallery has chosen it. It's also free.

We went to see the Rodney Peppe exhibition.which was great. Plenty of activities for children and most of the exhibits were hands on. Well laid out and informative. Staff were helpful and very pleasant. Well worth a visit

The gallery was busy with actives and full of interactive machines which we were allowed to have a go on. Wonderful huge paintings and we were shown into the council chamber to see more paintings there including a large Gainsborough portrait.

This museum, housed in the Town Hall, is centrally located. It contains a few old master paintings and several contemporary works. If you are in Falmouth and have a few minutes to spare, then visit it, but don't make a detour to see it.

I loved the Rodney Peppe exhibition and I'm certainly not a kid! Definitely worth a visit if you're in Falmouth.

It's not huge and one could get round in a few minutes. I think that in view of the HUGE wealth of decent artwork produced in the area the gallery could include more exhibits. There was an interesting and interactive section that appealed to my children and we had fun whilst keeping out of the rain. I wouldn't recommend it... More

A must if you are in Falmouth. It is in the middle in the old Library building.called the Passmore Edwards Museum (I think) very well managed and a real bit of Victorian history with great atmosphere inside. It is on 'The Moor', an island where buses stop and taxis collect. There is also a great cafe newly opened right near,... More

Small but very friendly gallery. We saw lots of families visiting mainly because the main exhibition was showing work of children's illustrator Rodney Peppé and his collection of mechanical toys. Complementing this exhibition was a show of mechanical art works by different artists - delightful! Another exhibition featured paintings connected with Jamaica and Falmouth. We enjoyed the visit.
