About the Museum

Helston Museum is one of the largest folk museums in the South West, hosting a massive collection of exhibitions arranged carefully over two floors and five separate halls. From the narrow frontage protected by a cannon from the HMS Anson, the building opens up and extends back to provide a fascinating understanding of days gone by. The museum is now run by the South Kerrier Heritage Trust.
