The Royal Cornwall Museum will delight and amaze visitors. It is nearly 200 years old and has acquired a wide and varied collection from all aspects of Cornwall’s history, culture and environment.

It was founded in 1818 for ‘the promotion of knowledge in natural history, ethnology and the fine and industrial arts, especially in relation to Cornwall’. It’s collections include a 2500 year old Mummy, a 5000 year old jade axe and a 40000 year old Cornish lunulae. Visitors can see the Trewinnard Coach - our ancestors’ version of a Rolls Royce - and examine a famous explorer’s medicine chest.

The world famous Rashleigh Mineral Collection is also housed here, with over 1200 beautiful specimens on display. Upstairs are some wonderful paintings from Old Master Painters to contemporary Cornish Artists.
