The St Ives Museum is really worth a visit, housing a fascinating history of St Ives’ heritage.
There are eight rooms on two floors containing collections of all facets of the town’s history, including art, the mines, the train lines and tourists – and the original fish curing cellar can still be seen.
This independent museum is run entirely by volunteers. ‘I was advised by a very learned elderly friend of mine that this museums is one of the top three he has ever visited in his life. He was not wrong! Thank you’ ‘A must see treasure trove for every St Ives visitor’.
The museum is located in the heart of the old St Ives fishing community of Downlong, housed in a building that was formerly a pilchard curing cellar, Bible Christian Chapel then a laundry and cinema.
It costs £5 per adult for entry and children go free. Dogs on a lead are welcome.
