Have been here several times. Packed with information about local social history, mining, milling, cobblers shop, farming etc. Working water wheel. Excellent value for money with a nice little shop attached. Very nice couple who run it - well worth a visit!

An excellent gem, hidden away in quiet Zennor. A garden and out buildings full of treasures and history alongside a renovated mill that still produces its own flour! Beautifully presented by the owners and touchingly full of local villagers memoirs and keepsakes. Highly recommended!

Second visit and well worth the trip. Lovely drive to Zennor. The museum is really well put together and it's amazing how they get so much into such a small place. Highly recommended.
