Don't miss this little museum. It's free and packed with so much. Much bigger than it looks from the outside. Take some time to visit and you won't be disappointed

It is very rare this day and age to go somewhere where the entry is FREE, there are lots of exhibits on display and extremely informative it is well worth making a donation to keep it running.

The museum was really quite interesting and surprising. There was so much to see and you could spend as much or as little time as you wished. It was very family friendly and very enjoyable. Donations were gratefully received and quite frankly you felt you were very welcome and it wasn't all about Money!! Mevagissey Museum well done and Thank... More
