Well worth the visit if you're interested in local history. Entry is free however there is a donation box as you enter but the money goes to a good cause.

This is a lovely little museum. Lots to look at and to learn about Mevagissey through time. I found it very interesting and left feeling that I knew much more about this delightful fishing harbour. Free entry with optional donation box. Well worth a visit...More

Love this museum - it’s free to go round and is packed to the rafters with interesting exhibits and stories of local life. Fascinating and wished we had more time to go round but can always go back next year. Highly recommended.

Well worth the time to learn about the history of Mevagissey. I especially enjoyed the historical photos. The harbor was a highlight of our Cornwall visit.

Free museum reflecting the history of this great town from every aspect- fishing history to everyday life. Lots of artifacts and anecdotal evidence show casing a great community. When you think how much you are charged to visit other places of interest such as Stone...More

Lovely little museum crammed with all sorts of local artefacts. Too much in too little space though, and consequently lacks order. Needs more than one visit to do it justice. A good spot for a wet day.
