Welcome to Museums in Cornwall!

Cornwall has long been a destination for innovators, creators and adventurers, creating a rich legacy of stories and tales from past. Our museums provides spaces for visitors to immerse themselves in our rich past and to feel the strong sense of place throughout Cornwall.

Did you know that Garibaldi left his cloak behind when he received a heroes welcome in Cornwall and that the House of Commons was lit for 60 years by limelight - a Cornish invention? Or that Newlyn and St Ives hosted international art colonies while Cornish miners left in droves for a better life overseas?

There's a museum in Cornwall to cater to all interests. Celebrate artists and visionaries at our galleries or bury yourself in stories of yesteryear at our museums. Find out how our past meets our future in these museums at the heart of our communities.
