Visitors to the museum, 2016

The Museum welcomed 4988 visitors, tantalisingly short of 5000, from 19 different countries during this season. Visitors came from all over Cornwall and the United Kingdom, as well as from around the World. There were 53 visitors from Australia, some researching their Cornish heritage, 36 from Germany and 34 from America. Among other countries with a significant number of visitors were Canada (17), Holland (18) and Spain (25). Small numbers came from Russia, Sweden, Argentina and Denmark. The highest number of visitors recorded on a single day was 87 on 17 August.

Many appreciative comments, particularly of the welcome given by volunteer stewards, were recorded in the Visitors’ Book:

  • Very impressed
  • Very nice, and lovely prepared displays
  • Shows history of this beautiful town, in Cornwall
