Penlee House Gallery and Museum

Set within a park and specialising in showcasing west Cornwall’s unique cultural heritage, Penlee House Gallery and Museum was built in 1865 and has since been converted into a much-loved gallery and museum.

Displaying historic collections from Newlyn Art Gallery, Penzance Town Council and Cornwall Council, the gallery features an ongoing programme of changing exhibitions throughout the year, which celebrate the unique craftsmanship and skill behind some of the most iconic paintings from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The art gallery itself features some of the best-known pieces from Newlyn School, from popular artists such as Norman Garstin, Elizabeth Forbes, Walter Langley and Stanhope Forbes, and offers a welcoming and peaceful space for quiet contemplation.

The museum showcases pieces collected over 6,000 years of history in west Cornwall, including archaeological pieces from Penwith’s historic landscape, as well as more recent social history examples from this unique part of Cornwall.

Visitors can also enjoy a cup of something warming and sample some local cuisine in the on-site cafe, which serves up snacks, cakes and light lunches, and offers picturesque views across the park.

Get to the very heart of rural west Cornwall and uncover its cultural heritage through powerful paintings, ancient archaeology and fascinating social history artefacts at this first-class gallery and museum.
