Helston Museum, Helston

(110+ reviews on the web)
History Museum
Helston Museum was established in 1949 and is housed in a large listed building, formerly the Butter and Egg Market, Cattle Market and Drill Hall in the centre of Helston. The deceptively small entrance leads into five display halls on two floors, bursting with exhibits reflecting the history of Helston and the surrounding area. With one of the best social history, photograph and costume collections in the South West, Helston museum is a fascinating and FREE experience, where you are guaranteed a warm welcome from staff and volunteers.

  • Had a fantastic time here with my family. I was given a stone by one of the artists who was working there. I put it in my pocket and forgot about it. Later we were given free tea and biscuits. After or visit I put the stone in the shelf of the car door and forgot about it till I was cleaning out the car many years later. All the memories of the holiday cam flooding back. It was such a nice and totally unexpected surprise. Stephen Moore
  • Love visiting this museum. So many childhood memories. You can spend hours & hours in here it is huge. Lovely staff very polite & helpful
  • Surprisingly good for a local museum. I probably spent longer looking round this than I did looking round the Royal Cornwall museum in Truro.
  • A hidden gem! Ended up there by accident on a break from a walk but a lovely place to spend and hour or so- lots to see and very friendly people inside :)
  • Lovely museum with lots of local history. A great way to spend a morning.
