Fictitious Cornwall (10 November 2019 – 8 February 2020)
Beginning in our exhibition gallery with Sherlock Holmes the display continues upstairs where novels have taken over our traditional displays. We explore a number of novels that have been set in Cornwall such as The Shell Seekers, Rebecca, Podark, Wind in the Willows and The Forgotton Garden .
Step through the unassuming doors of The Museum of Cornish Life for a truly breath-taking surprise – the sheer size of the museum is completely unexpected.
This lovely old fashioned museum, housed in the town’s historic Market Buildings, is spread over five display halls on three floors, and the thousands of objects will keep you fascinated, entertained, and coming back for more!
The Museum of Cornish Life, Helston is managed by the Charity South Kerrier Heritage Trust, and our volunteers work hard to make sure your visit is the highlight of your holiday or day out. Entrance to the museum is FREE, but we encourage donations to keep this wonderful facility open. You can also support us by joining our Museum Supporters Group, which gives directly funds all aspects of the museum including collection care, displays, learning and our commitment to free entry for all.
