Attraction Information

Probably the finest collection of smuggling artefacts in the country, featuring 'The History Of Jamaica Inn' an educational and historical theatre show that recounts many of the myths and legends associated with Jamaica Inn and Cornwall including tales of wreckers and smugglers over the past 300 years.

Enter into the evil yet romantic era of smuggling in Cornwall and see what is probably the finest collection of smuggling artefacts in the country. Smuggling evolved when customs dues were first introduced in the thirteenth century but there was no form of law and order until the fifteenth century and even then it was negligible. Goods such as silks, tea, tobacco and brandy were more frequently smuggled into Cornwall than anywhere else in England.

The museum is a wonderful way to spend a day, delving into the past and immersing yourself in the fantastic atmosphere.
