Overview

Liskeard is an ancient Cornish town with a fantastic museum where you can Learn about local Cornish history. This year explore the use of tin and other minerals in everyday life with the 'Tin, Toys and Tales' exhibition. 'The Plastic Age' by local artists asks you to consider what happens when you throw plastic away and what you can do to make a difference. We host many events and talks throughout the year.

This is the way museums should be. Small. Intimate. Deeply connected with its location. Clean. Attractive and, best of all informed. The small gift shop is not full of chinese tat. The staff are, without exception, knowledgeable and friendly. Don't just wait for a wet...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.

I can't find too much to say about this place as there is not much to say, but you will find it down a side street in the centre of town, behind Webb's Hotel, inside the tourist info. The staff and very helpful and welcoming,...More

Lovely little museum. It has 3 floors each with a different theme. The museum is run by volunteers and they are all lovely and very passionate about what they do. I loved the exhibition on plastic that washes up on the beach- very eye opening!...More
