Just £2 for entry & well worth it. Alot of history about Looe, with some excellent old photos. World War items were well worth seeing as well. Watch out for the Prisoner!

There is lots to see in this seemingly small museum. We arrived early on a Sunday morning and were greeted by an enthusiastic volunteer guide, who was brimming with information and keen to show us round. Well worth a visit.
