St Ives Museum - Packed Full Of Interesting & Quirky Artifacts!

St Ives Museum is really worth a visit. It is jam packed full to the rafters of interesting and unusual bits of history from St Ives. From the fishing industry to the mines, the train line and tourists. It provides so much detail about the town and it's history.

As someone I know remarked, it's like the inhabitants of St Ives have cleared out their attics for all to see. Some of it is odd, most of it is fascinating!

Children's activity sheets can be purchased for 20p.
Find for fun - tiny models of cats and kittens are located among the display cases for younger children to search out. "As I was going to St Ives .."
