“good museum tucked away in a corner”
Reviewed 27 July 2011

if you are not of an inquisitive nature, you could easily miss this museum. wherever we go, we are compelled to see what is there attraction wise. we try not to miss any museum, park, house, anything so we made sure we went and had a look.
this museum was quaint and packed with items and it had the feel of an old antique shop or an auctioneers rather than a museum. it is quite a collection and the ladies working there were very proud of the place and indeed the area they represent. we chatted for quite a while. the admission fee is about right as there is nothing to wow you but we are glad we paid it a visit and there was enough to interest us. this is the sort of place that england should be proud of and long may they continue opening. museums of this size are closing on a regular basis and i hope this one survives. would we visit again? yes we would and we will next time we visit cornwall.

“excellent value for money, and very interesting”
Reviewed 24 March 2011

we went here last summer at the insistence of our grandson, who had visited previousley, and we weren't disappointed. we spent about an hour and a half there, and the boys wanted to go back again., excellent value for money.

“Aladdins Cave”
Reviewed 22 March 2011

St Ives museum is a little visited attraction with a wealth of pictures, articles and exhibits of St Ives history. Would reccomend this on a rainy day or if you wan't to get away from the bussle of the town. Situated close to Porthgwidden beach and the harbour.
