Royal Cornwall Museum

The UK's Greatest Museum For Cornish Life & Culture. The Royal Institution of Cornwall – the organisation that owns and manages the Royal Cornwall Museum and Courtney Library – was founded in 1818 for 'the promotion of knowledge in natural history, ethnology and the fine and industrial arts, especially in relation to Cornwall'. This is still at the heart of everything we do, from collecting, display, exhibitions, education, publishing and our outreach programmes.
