Royal Cornwall Museum was founded by The Royal Institution of Cornwall in 1818 to promote excellence in science and art and to forward the world-leading industries that Cornwall was known for. Over 200 years, The Royal Institution of Cornwall has established the museum, Courtney Library, and a programme of exhibitions, events, and activities to further its original aim.


Our mission is to provide a welcoming, dynamic and lively cultural hub centred around our collections, that inspires people to explore, thrive and have fun. For us, that means putting on entertaining and informative exhibitions, to providing a welcoming space for families, to assisting children and adults in research and learning.
