Following the Cornwall Museums Group AGM and visit to Perranzabuloe Museum, delegates from four museums, Padstow, Bude, Liskeard and St Ives came on to St Agnes Museum for a look around, including behind the scenes.
They were welcomed by Chairman, Roger Radcliffe, and Outreach Officer, Liz Thompson. They thought St Agnes Museum was spacious, with plenty of room for our growing reserve collection, and were interested in our shop and the grants we had obtained.
It was a pleasure to see them and we look forward to visiting their museums in turn.
