Outside the museum is the Finbaker Cannon, found in Looe Bay in the 19th century. It is thought to have come from a 17th century Spanish warship. For many years the cannon was upended and used as bollard on the quayside. It weighs half a ton and is supported by a modern carriage that is an exact replica of an original 17th century carriage.
