St Ives Museum
The Museum is located in the heart of the old St Ives fishing community of Downlong.
Formerly the building housed a Pilchard Curing Cellar, Bible Christian Chapel then a laundry and cinema.
The British Sailors Society Mission occupied the first floor until 1968 when the St Ives Museum were offered space. Over the next few years the famous Troika Pottery vacated the ground floor enabling the museum to expand further.
This independent museum is administered entirely by volunteers.
