Great little museum on two floors which contains a vast array of items of local interest. We first visited on Sunday when it was closed so went back again on another day when the weather was a tad inclement and were glad that we did. Allow yourself plenty of time as it takes a while to see everything including Tiny,... 更多
A rusty dusty collection of "stuff", much of which seems to have been given to the museum simply because it is old. There are far too many photos of boats fishermen, bits of tackle and gear etc. to see easily or to make sense of. The sea and fishing should be the focus of simplified, modernised new diplays and most... 更多
Came here when the weather wasn't so good. Had wanted to visit last year but it was closed for structural repairs. The Museum is staffed and run by enthusiastic volunteers. The entrance fee was only £3 which is more than reasonable, you can donate more if you like. There is lots to look at around the history of St Ives,... 更多
St Ives Museum is situated in the old fishing quarter and overlooks St Ives Bay. It is an ideal place to visit when it is raining; we went in to shelter from the rain and were pleasantly surprised. The enthusiastic volunteers were very pleasant and knowledgeable about the history of St Ives and we listened to stories about disasters at... 更多
Not a slick, smart, professional-looking museum by modern standards, but a fascinating collection of thousands of exhibits, photos and paintings, all donated, and from and about the local community. They're all lovingly collected and crammed into this interesting old building, by enthusiastic and friendly volunteers. We spent a good hour or two poring over it all. Well worth a visit.
Staffed by volunteers and at only £3 entrance each we were not sure what to expect. It's almost like they can't say no to any items offered. The place is stacked with a plethora of items, most of which are reflective of a St Ives heritage. Fascinating old photos give a great sense of history. Well worth a visit.
Haven't been here before but very interesting. Strange mix of paintings and traditional cornish living from years ago.downstairs is all about herring fishing and tin mining. A good couple of hours spent here .
It's a charming little museum full of the objects,paintings and photos that make the history of the city and the region. Run by friendly and knowledgeable volunteers, it's a nice alternative activity on a rainy day. I particularly liked the impressive ship wreck photos collection
