Just decided to pay a visit to a local tourist spot. Great displays. Never new there would be so much to see. Beautiful gardens and tea room. Will go again. Well worth a visit if you are in the area and have time to spare😊

A little gem of a Museum! Spent about 2 hours and could have spent longer. Terrific help with the exhibition by the very friendly staff and all for free. You must go! Really well laid out and a credit to The council!! Thank you

Rarely do you find such a gem of a museum with a population of less than 10k. Stunning, informative and just what you want from a museum. Everyone can marvel at the exhibits and the rooms which takes you back in time. Even the smell of the tack room in the cellar reminded me of bygone years. A definite must see. Very suitable for young children too - a great trail is included.

If your previous experience of museums is a load of broken pottery in glass cases, you are in for a very pleasant surprise here. This museum has something for everyone, ranging from the history of Launceston to the Second World War, old farming tools , costumes, household items, coins, a Victorian kitchen, and a fascinating display room devoted to four of Launceston's not so well known but should be more famous sons. The Toy Room has a large display of toys - spot the ones that you remember - and also has toys for children to play with, which is great for introducing children to museums. Don't miss the Polyphon in the inner hall. One of the friendly and knowledgable volunteers will give you an old penny to slot into this huge 'music box '. Entry to the museum is free, but there is a donations box in the entrance hall and I can't imagine that anyone, having spent such an enjoyable time as we did, would pass it by.

Great for a couple of hours to browse the museum (in the unlikely event of a little rain!). The volunteers are very knowledgeable and helpful.

This is a museum about Launceston, by the people of Launceston, created with love and care. Entry is free, although donations are welcome, and each room of this private dwelling has a different theme. It is well worht a visit, and plenty of advice and local knowledge is on hand. To avoid high car park fees, park in the Pannier Market, right up at the top, where it is £2.00 for the whole day. Launceston is so small that it is only a shortish walk to the museum. Go through the castle grounds to get there, which is an extra treat
