The museum has a small shop selling local interest books, cards, children’s books, small toys and mementos. We aim to source most of our stock locally and this includes several attractive items made of tin from Blue Hills, St. Agnes. It is an ideal place to pop in and find something special from St. Agnes for both holiday-makers and locals alike.
For those looking to explore the history of St. Agnes on foot, the museum offers audio guides on portable MP3 players, which were jointly donated by the St. Agnes Chamber of Commerce and the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. The players contain guided trails to the St. Agnes area, and can be borrowed during opening hours.
For genealogists there is a small St. Agnes Parish family History/Genealogy research section. The records include material unavailable elsewhere such as personally researched Family Trees, transcribed School Log Books and Headstone Transcriptions from the various cemeteries.
School visits are welcomed by arrangement. Carefully structured workshops, suitable for Primary School pupils, on 19th century Mining and World War II, both seen through the eyes of a child, are offered free of charge to local schools on their premises. Please ask for more details if interested.
Guided Tours for groups and Out of Hours visits welcomed by arrangement.
