Jamaica Inn – Daphne du Maurier Museum | Cornwall

Daphne du Maurier Museum

Jamaica Inn now has the only museum in the world dedicated to Daphne du Maurier, the famous author of Rebecca, The Birds, Frenchman’s Creek etc – and of course, Jamaica Inn.

The du Maurier Museum, which is next to the Inn’s Cornish Smuggling Museum, has 3 rooms of exhibits including many recently acquired and never seen in public before, such as original letters from the Queen, Prince Philip and Prince Charles to Daphne and her husband.

There are also intriguing personal letters by Daphne to her best friend Maureen Baker-Munton that reveal secrets about her private life plus numerous old photos of her and her family. Other exhibits highlight her husband’s war-time experiences – Frederick ‘Boy’ Browning, was Commander of the 1st Airborne Division at the battle for Arnhem upon which the film ‘A Bridge Too Far’ was based.

There are numerous other Daphne-related exhibits and the modest entrance fee (£3.95) also includes admission to the adjacent Smuggling Museum.
