Exhibition ‘Under the Eaves’ opens Saturday 9 October
Our latest exhibition showcases some of the objects from Camborne Museum now held in storage at the Museum of Cornish Life. The Camborne Collection came to the museum in 2005 when Camborne Museum closed. For the first time since the transfer, this exhibition displays some of the familiar and unfamiliar items held in this eclectic collection.
This exhibition has been put together by Tamsin Chaffin, trainee curator, and is inspired by the ‘Under the Eaves’ research series led by Julia Webb-Harvey, uncovering objects and their stories hidden in storage under the eaves of the museum.
‘Under the Eaves’ is on display from October 9 to November 24.

Climate Cafe – Wednesday 10 November 10.30am
Climate Cafés are an opportunity for people to get together to talk and act on climate change. Climate Cafes are informal, inclusive spaces where everyone is welcome to join the conversation and get involved. Often they are local in their focus and might include people from the same or neighbouring organisations with the aim of connecting with wider climate action locally, nationally and globally. Importantly, Cafes are apolitical and non-judgemental. Cornwall Museums Partnership is interested to find out what difference we might make with museums and our community.
