This compact museum is worth a visit if you have any interest at all in the geology, history, culture and industry of Cornwall. Spanning all the way from prehistoric times to the modern day, there are both temporary and permanent exhibits. Children can interact, play and learn in their own section. The museum is spread out over two floors and is a particularly good idea if you are stuck for something to do on a rainy day in Cornwall.

The Royal Cornwall Museum is a great place to learn about the history and heritage of Cornwall, especially its mining past. There are also exhibits of Egyptian mummy, explorers’ medicine chest and art! A great place to learn about this part of the country.
