We would like to convey our thanks to all those who have supported us especially our band of volunteers
The New Museum opened on 8 October 2018 at the new premises adjacent to the coach park on South Quay Padstow.
The official opening took place on 29 November the opening ceremony was performed by Jill Crowley, cousin of the late Rev Barry Kinsmen, Barry was a great supporter Museum having been involved from the 1970's, he was a passionate historian in regards to all matters associated with Padstow.
It was by his generosity, and a bequest to the museum that we were able to achieve this long awaited move of venue.
The ceremony was attended by almost 100 invited persons who have connections with the museum or had been active in the presentation of the new Museum.
We were please to welcome a party of children from the local school.
The town council chamber was made available to us for the reception of our visitors, for this we extend our grateful thanks to the PTC.
Following the opening many of those who attended the ceremony took a tour of the museum.
We now look forward to the 2019 season and welcoming many new friends and visitors.as a result of the new venue and the publicity it has attracted, we now have a number of new volunteer helpers, enabling us to double up on our reception facilities.
as a result of our move we have many improvements, firstly we have full disability access, with hearing loop facilities for the deaf impaired, also interactive displays and as an added bonus we now have security camera facilities
During the period since we opened we have had a footfall in excess of 16,000 Adults & 2,500 children,
We have been pleased to welcome visitors from many countries across the world, for example Canada, USA, Finland, Norway, the Orient as far as Australia and New Zealand.
Our visitor book is a glowing testimony to our efforts.
