The heritage museum is free to enter and manned by our wonderful volunteers. There is plenty to see and do at the museum, so we suggest you set aside at least 60 minutes to come in and explore the artefact and speak to our wonderful volunteers. If you are planning a longer visit or combining your visit to the museum with a pit stop at The Garden tearoom, then please do come and spend a few hours here with us and enjoy the wonderful view of Trenance Gardens, a garden that has achieved the prestigious 5 Star
Parks Award from Britain in Bloom, South West.

A visit to the museum can be incorporated with several other activities as well, including the Discovery Trail, the Newquay Tree Walk, or a trip to Newquay Zoo and the Trenance Leisure Park area. For further information about these self-guided walks and leisure facilities, please visit the Newquay Tourist Information website.
In terms of accessibility, most of the site is flat with wheelchair access and there is access to a disabled toilet and baby change facilities. However, the rooms upstairs in the museum are reached by a narrow staircase. Those with mobility issues are encouraged to call us prior to visiting so we can share more detailed information. Or, if you are onsite, we would encourage you to speak to one of our volunteers who will be able to share their knowledge and understanding of any accessibility issues with you.
