We aim to link the past, the present and the future of Liskeard and its surrounding areas in an interesting and informative manner. The museum concentrates on local people, organisations, trades, professions and industries, together with the events that have shaped the history of our unique locality.

Displays include changes in the natural environment, mining and agriculture, building and architecture, places of worship, policing, local government and the lives, loves and labours of members of our community.

We are the interpretation centre for the Cornwall Mining World Heritage Site. Various exhibitions are held throughout the year, we have a monthly mini-exhibition as well as larger displays.


Entry to the museum is free of charge, we welcome families and our building is fully wheelchair accessible with a lift to all three floors.
