The best museum I have visited for a long time. Spacious, but packed with really interesting exhibits and information. The exhibits explaining the mining processes are the best I 've seen - simple and accurate. Wish we'd had more time to stop, but we'll be...More

The museum is very small but there is no entrance fee, just a donation box. There's a gift shop, old toy display, gem stone display with magnifier and an eye opening plastics display with information on its effect on wildlife. Worth a visit.

It's a small but well run free local museum. If you are in Liskeard it's definitely worth visiting. The exhibitions change but always have a local theme and there'll usually be something on mining - which used to be so important in the area. The...More

Called in here for a look around. It's free to visit but we left a donation. Lots of interesting things to look at. Staff were on hand to answer any questions and there were activities for children.
