I visited the museum with my teenage daughter. We both found it fascinating with plenty of interesting facts on the history of Fowey and its occupants. Well worth seeking out, but not suitable for young children.

A great little museum, crammed full of fascinating objects and stories about the rich history of Fowey. A must visit - and run by lovely volunteers too.

Only in fowey for a few hours but made sure we visited this little museum. Could not believe it only cost a £1 entrance fee. Lots of things to read and learn about.

Simply mesmerising in every manner. We enjoyed our view all round and the views outside where also amazing. We enjoyed everything about it. Price was reasonable and the information learned extremely interesting.
