Founded in the early 1800s by the Royal Institute of Cornwall, their aim has always been to show the world-leading industries Cornwall has been renowned for – especially in the fields of science and art.
At the very heart of Cornwall and its cultural life, the museum is a centre of exploration and learning. Using the eclectic collections of Cornish culture, art, antiquities, archaeology, science, and natural history they aim to take people on a journey from deep underground to up into the sky, around the world and way back in time. In doing this, they use their collections to help communities look forward together.
With renowned displays of modern and classic art to enjoy, pick up discovery packs, trails and children’s activities to make your visit a great memory for the whole family.
The Museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm - keep an eye on their website for the most up to date seasonal opening times
