The Museum in Looe holds a fascinating array of exhibits covering the social and economic history of Looe from early times to the present day

Museum Management and Staff

How we run our Museum

Looe Museum is managed by a small committee of volunteers together with external support from a professional museum mentor, and a representative of the ELTT.

We hope to open each day during the season between 11am and 4pm. This does require a good supply of volunteers and we are keen to attract more in order to undertake the programme of work that accreditation entails and to develop the computerised catalogue of objects in the museum.

Volunteers Needed

We are particularly interested to hear from people with computing, digital photography and social media skills in order to progress this work. Training and support will be given to those who would like to learn new skills in conservation and museum related activities.

We also need new volunteers to help to welcome the many visitors during the season. The work is very rewarding meeting, greeting and conversing with the wide cross-section of visitors: many from abroad and many who have family connections in the area.
