December 2015 - Marazion’s town museum is housed on the ground floor of the Town Hall in what was once the Marazion & District Fire Brigade’s headquarters. The back section of the complex was once the town gaol, and a typical cell has been reconstructed there.
In the late 19th Century, Marazion lost its municipal status. With remarkable foresight, a Town Trust was set up to preserve the town regalia and other artefacts, including documents and manuscripts. This continuity of record means that the Town Museum now offers a fascinating exhibition about historic Marazion to be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
