28th Sept 2017                                    Great News     The Future of Padstow Museum


We are in a position now to be able to announce that our aspirations to move to a new venue are becoming a reality.

Our grateful thanks to Padstow Town Council for affording us accommodation in the refurbished Station House project.

Since the museum was created in 1971, we have been housed in the Men’s Institute for this we are indebted to the the Trustees of that building.

We have long desired to move to a venue where we could enable 100%  accessibility to visitors . Our major problem has been Disability access, which was impractical to resolve due to the building structure. At our new venue we have level access for the  surrounding walkway, with the adjacent car park and public toilet facilities.P1010083.jpg

 We will continue to operate from our present venue for the 2017 season, reopening in 2018 at the new  venue, in the Old Station House  During the winter period we have an intense programme of work to re  house and revamp our displays.

We have engaged designers S & N (a Cornwall based partnership) to produce designs for the new displays, the brief is to have new displays built around the available artefacts of our collection, but retain the ambiance  the old museum which is much appreciated by our visiting public

 We will be needing more volunteers to man the new museum, so if you feel you can help in any way please  contact us.
