"The BIGGEST Little Museum in Cornwall"

  The museum is housed in a Georgian building on Fore Street in central Lostwithiel. It was originally the Corn Exchange and  has also been a school-room, a butchers, then a magistrate's court and the town jail. Nowadays the building houses the Guildhall, which is used for meetings of Lostwithiel Town Council, above the museum.
The museum was founded in 1972 and  it is now is now a fully accredited museum and a registered charity, which is run entirely by volunteers
.


2020 SEASON

Page updated 4th July 2020
LOSTWITHIEL MUSEUM IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Although the UK Government has lifted the coronavirus restrictions to allow museums to reopen from 4 July 2020,
the Lostwithiel Museum Association has taken the decision that the Museum will remain closed. 

The health and safety of all our volunteers and visitors comes first. 

As those who have previously visited the Museum know, the layout of the Museum does not allow for appropriate social distancing
nor the required hygiene procedures. 

This decision will be kept under review and we hope to be able to welcome you back to the Museum very soon.

Meanwhile, the Museum volunteers are continuing to work behind the scenes on projects for your future enjoyment.
