Great variety of exhibits - something to interest everyone. Excellent value for money - only £2.50 for myself and my son.

A proper museum full of treasures, local stories and history and lots of interesting displays in a delightfully low tech and eccentric quirky British way. Great for kids of all ages.

The museum covers a lot of the history of St Ives and from fishing to mining and from farming to ship building there are lots of artefacts. Many Photos. Worth an hour at least

When you go in it can be a bit off putting as there is so much to look at and see. It isn't planned out very well and gives the impression of just being a load of clutter.
However, on closer inspection, you find an amazing amount of really interesting stuff. St Ives has got an really interesting past and it is shown in great detail.
You could easily spend a couple of hours in there if you like history.
We would definitely visit again as we felt that we had probably missed loads of things
