The Institute, Market Place  Padstow, Cornwall.  PL28 8AH


Founded in 1971 by an enthusiastic group of local residents headed by retired boat builder Bill Lindsey, the museum is a registered non profit making charity and is maintained and staffed by local volunteers, our donation box is our only income and is used to cover our overheads.

 

Our unique collection of  artefacts presents an insight into the Social History of the Port of Padstow over the past two centuries.

This small but interesting museum is situated just 20 metres from the harbour side in Padstow on the North Cornish Coast.


  Padstow is an important fishing port and harbour of refuge on the North Coast of Cornwall, a haven for many visiting yachtsmen .


From here that many Cornishmen and their families embarked for a new life in the North America after the collapse of the Cornish Tin mining industry.


  Padstow probably best known for its celebration of the coming of Summer with its Obby - Oss festivities on the 1st May each year, this being well documented in the Museum archives.

The introductory music to the site is just a glimpse of Padstow’s very special Mayday Celebrations
