It's a small museum however it has some very interesting history of Perranporth, with lots to read and learn. Apparently they change their stock every year so it's worth visiting annually.

I've walked past this place for many years but with some rough weather I finally took the time to visit. The photographs are fascinating and the lady was very informative. It's hard to believe that this museum as many relies on local volunteers to keep...More

The small museum is above the library. It encompasses various aspects of the areas's past: tin mining nearby, the coming of the railway (sadly no longer) and development as a seaside resort, the association with motorsport and surfing. Well worth a visit, free but opening...More

A great local museum, established for many years. Packed with many interesting local artefacts, carefully collected over many years, thousands of excellent photographs showing the village from its start to recent times. No trip to Perranporth would be complete without a visit to this museum!
