The Smugglers Museum houses one of the finest collections of smuggling artefacts in the country. Featuring ‘The History of Jamaica Inn', an educational and historical theatre show, the Museum brings alive many of the myths and legends associated with Jamaica Inn and Cornwall, including tales of wreckers and smugglers over the past 300 years. Whilst you're here, why not visit the Daphne du Maurier room full of memorabilia including her famous Sheraton writing desk. Visit the shop at Jamaica Inn where you can buy a souvenir of the Inn, a Daphne du Maurier book or a gift. Let the children enjoy the play area under your watchful eye - they can even climb aboard our very own wooden pirate ship!
The Jamaica Inn isn't just the second most haunted pub in England but more importantly the most famous inn in the world! But don't just take my word for it, ask Google. I spent two nights here and I have to say, I now know what would of been going through the mind of Daphne Du Maurier when she penned the first draft of the book of the same name. Intrigue, suspense and sheer wonder are just some of the very emotions that this famous inn can provoke. The museum here at the Jamaica Inn isn't the biggest museum I have ever been to, however this museum has one of the biggest personalities of any museum I have been to so far. The Jamaica Inn has been around since the 17th Century and with the new owners enthusiasm for this Great British institution, I can see it being here for yet another 250 years.
