“An interesting little museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

On a rainy day this was somewhere to spend some time in the dry.
Some interesting bits and pieces to be found. May be it was just me but I thought a bit disorganised.

“Good time killer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Fascinating insight into punishments in those times and lots of visual aids to hold your interest. It is very small but well worth £1.80 of anyones money, especially if it's a bit cold and wet outside!

“Museums as they were.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

A huge mine of information, and extremely interesting if you have the time to look and learn. Worth visiting more than once as you will see different things each time.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

At £1.80 entry fee it's cheaper than a pot of tea! If you have any interest in cornwalls rich heritage it's definitely worth a visit. It is small, but it's the fact that this very building is actually part of the history the museum is describing that adds to it's charm. You wouldn't believe the amount of information that can be crammed in. Smugglers, Lifeboats, WW2, Victorians, fossils, cannon balls, and a couple of cells, all under one roof. We spent an hour there on a rainy afternoon, and certainly got our money's worth.
