  • We were surprised by the scope and quality of the exhibits. There are some fascinating things, everything from local industrial archaeology to a bit of ancient Egypt. Well worth a visit. 
  • Some nice exhibits on the history of Cornwall in a great old building. Wonderful mineralogy room with outstanding displays of all the metal ores which have affected Cornwall over time. £11 adult entry. Bit steep perhaps?
  • Love taking my 3 year old here. We enjoy the diversity of artifacts and activities
  • After attending the travel writers' day on 29th May 2015 at the Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro led by Denise M-B from Plymouth University. RCM was the perfect venue for learning to write about heritage interpretation from a travel writer's point of view. The RCM staff and the Courtney Library staff are wonderful, really helpful and knowledgeable.
  • Could argue the educational value but apart from that very well organised and managed for a museum.
  • Sweet thanks
