Liskeard & District Museum
Due to the current lockdown Liskeard & District Museum will be closed until further notice
Our ground floor has now reopened and you can visit our popular toy exhibition and the new 1950s/1960s exhibition, the upper floors remain closed for now. This decision has been made for the health and wellbeing of our volunteer team and the wider community.
Work will continue in the museum to develop our displays, care for the collection and help with enquiries. We aim to keep everyone informed and able to view the exhibitions via Facebook and our websites.
