We are currently sharing an online exhibition Wendron Leats and Heston Kennels.
On 17 May we will be opening with a new temporary exhibition looking at our archaeological collection and the work of the Finds Liaison Officer in Cornwall.
For the summer we will be mounting an exhibition looking at how the Second World War affected the lives of those in Cornwall. We are gathering stories hidden in archives, collections and peoples memories. Before we open we are sharing some of these stories gathered in partnership with Bodmin Keep.
