‪Great local museum‬
ינו׳ 2019
‪A very friendly attendent with a clear interest In Penryn's history that he can't help but share. He seems so grateful for any visitor he gets, especially out of season. Hence I would highly recommend visiting as it would be tragic to see this place close through lack of use by the local community.‬

‪This is an interesting little museum run by friendly and knowledgeable volunteers.

We learned about the history of the town, from medieval Penryn right up to the modern day, and the people who lived and worked there. We were surprised to see such a large number of interesting artefacts in such a small space, some dating back to the 1200s, including stonework from Glasney College, one of Cornwall’s most historic religious institutions.

We found the mummified ‘Plague rat’ on display very creepy; it still had all its whiskers and teeth. It was discovered in the late 1990s at a house in Penryn by some builders who were doing some renovation work on the staircase. The rodent was taken to the Penryn Museum by the builders and then sent to experts, who determined the rat had been undisturbed since the 14th century.

This small museum is definitely worth a visit and it’s free!‬
