Window display for June 2021

Our June 2021 window display features our in-house magazines and shows how Past & Present, and the currently named Museum Matters, have evolved since they were first published 25 years ago in 1996.


Back copies of the magazines are available for you to see in the Reference area of the Museum.


With thanks to Mary, Ian and Maggie for their help with the display.

Window display for March / April 2021

Our Window display for March / April 2021 featured the Lostwithiel branch of the Old Cornwall Society which was started in 1952.

The original embroidered and appliqued Old Cornwall Society Banner features some of our key buildings and the Town Seal in green, gold and grey which are the town colours.

It was due to the determination of this dedicated group that Lostwithiel Museum was officially and finally opened 50 years ago in 1971. The Lostwithiel branch continues to meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month and is currently arranging a programme of talks from experienced speakers for later this year.

Thank you to Mary Mitchell [Chairman of the Lostwithiel branch] who arranged this display, and to her Committee for their generous sponsorship in support of the Museum.
