Didn't open on time so we had to keep returning to see if it was open. Cheap at £2 but very disappointing. We spent the longest time watching the video about the floods but then I had to sit on my bag rather than on the dirty bench.

This place is ok but, only takes 10 -15 minutes to see everything. Glad it only cost £6 for a family ticket as its not worth any more. Model village was nice to look at but, thats about it. Could do with a bit of an upgrade. Chap on the door friendly.

Outdated and overpriced , only accept cash. As like the exhibit seems to be stuck in the past. Maybe have been good 20 years ago, not so now. Needs updating and complete rip off. Save your £3. Pity they decided to open it after it was flooded. Would have saved the world from some utter crap, that they pretend is... More

Bit dated. The model village itself can be viewed in minutes. It is quite a good representation of Polperro. There is s strange little show at the end. It is only £3 each but definitely not worth any more.

We visited the model village whilst in Polperro for the morning. Quite small in size but someone has clearly taken a lot of time and effort to recreate the village itself. Some parts were looking a little tired but still able to relate to the actual buildings in the village.

Having visited a few model villages in various places this one is very different . Quite small but hand made and quaint . Interesting that you can stand in there and actually compare the buildings inside that you can see around you .interesting show on way out of local area. Worth the admission .

Nice model village, with obviously tons of effort and work that has been put in, a nice touch at the bottom of the display, with a small video of the floods of Polperro, the land of Legend is okay, it was very cheap to visit and the chap who we spoke to was lovely & friendly. Thank you.

Firstly you have to park a long way out of the village so if you have young children I highly recommend the vintage shuttle bus from the car park right to the model village. The model village is small ( no pun intended) but there is also a small moving display inside. It does need a bit of TLC but... More
