This is an interesting museum if you have a couple of hours to kill. I enjoyed looking at the old toys. Helpful friendly staff.

Great for a couple of hours to browse the museum (in the unlikely event of a little rain!). The volunteers are very knowledgeable and helpful.

After following museum signs for the museum and walking up and down steps etc we could not find it and gave up. We also met people who were looking for the same. Shame but if your signage is inaccurate what else do you expect so don't waste your time and effort in trying to find it

A delightful surprise to find such a gracious house as a museum with themed room on 3 floors and a beautiful garden.

It is free... More

My mum and I visited the Lawrence house Museum on the spur of the moment while out for a walk round Launceston castle. We were inspired by a lady who walked passed us in the street and said 'you must go..: it's fantastic'. It hadn't been part of our plan for the afternoon but I'm so glad we went. The... More

A small museum in a Georgian property, with plenty of local interest. The staff are friendly, mostly volunteers with lots of knowledge of the area and history. Many interesting artifacts.

I have visited this delightful museum several times and always find the staff, all volunteers, very friendly and helpful. On this occasion we were drawn to visit by an exhibition of local artists, carefully displayed with a good supporting catalogue, and an offer of coffee and biscuits. There are several rooms, each with its own theme and informative displays and... More

From friendly staff to a treasure trove of trinkets and artifacts spanning centuries relating to the town and surrounding areas this is worth a visit. It's free and quite small but it well kept and should hold something if interest for everyone...go along.
