Old Guildhall Museum & Gaol, East 1AA, Higher Market Street, Looe PL13 1AA

OPENING TIMES

Open daily 11am to 4pm

Housed in a 550 year old building, Looe museum holds a surprisingly vast collection of items documenting the rich history of this small fishing village. Learn about boatbuilding, Looe’s part in Cornwall’s lucrative smuggling trade and browse the many exhibits displayed over two storeys of this once town hall and magistrates court.

The objects range from the prehistoric age right up to the present day and sit alongside a wealth of information about Looe’s social and economic history.

The museum is run by knowledgable volunteers who will happily answer any questions you might have. If it’s your own family history you are investigating, the museum also contains an archive of parish registers, census listings and some 400 hundred photographs, to help you dig a little deeper into the past.
