Royal Cornwall Museum

Situated in the centre of Truro, Royal Cornwall Museum is Cornwall’s largest museum, featuring a diverse selection of permanent displays and temporary exhibitions throughout the year.

The museum showcases a wide range of objects and materials from a variety of cultures and countries, comprising pieces from the Stone Age period through to modern, contemporary pieces, such as sculptures, carvings and fine art. The museum also focuses on weaponry, tools and historic everyday objects, many of which were collected by Cornishmen while abroad, reflecting their travels and interests.

Cornwall’s mining heritage is also a key theme throughout the exhibitions, telling stories of the spread of Cornish mining across the globe. The ‘Mexico: The Cornish Connection’ exhibition, which explores the cultural link between Cornwall and Mexico, has featured at the museum. It explores how iconic elements of Cornish culture, such as football and pasties, were introduced to Mexico.

The museum has also featured a Poldark exhibition which combines historical objects from the hit TV series, illustrating what Cornish life was like during the Poldark era, and explains some of the history behind the novels.

Family-friendly activities feature heavily on the museum’s programme. There are scheduled activities and trails for children and adults which run throughout school holidays, so you can keep the family entertained, even on wet-weather days.

Visitors can also enjoy a fine selection of made-to-order soups, jacket potatoes, quiches and sandwiches in the Arts Café, which sits between the museum and Truro Arts Company.
