The displays also cover 6000 years of history in west Cornwall, from Penwith’s amazing archaeological sites to more recent social history, such as the Newlyn Copper Works.

Penlee House Gallery & Museum is committed to making its collections accessible and exciting. Around 1500 school children per year visit to take part in free activities and there is a changing programme of five exhibitions a year – meaning there is always something new to see and discover.
