The UK’s Greatest Museum For Cornish Life & Culture | Free For Children

Arts Cafe

The inviting Arts Café sits between the Royal Cornwall Museum and Truro Arts Company, and offers plenty of seating for your morning coffee, lunch meeting, or afternoon tea.  Fresh, colourful salads, homemade soup, jacket potatoes, quiches sandwiches and toasted paninis are all made to order, using local produce where possible.

During the colder months, sink into a sofa while sipping hot chocolate with all the trimmings, or relax over a long lunch by the log burner. In the summer we’ve got alfresco eating in our sunny courtyard, where you can enjoy a glass of wine or cold cider. Art books and magazines are on hand for inspiration, free Wi-Fi, and we’ve also got the daily papers to ponder over, and toys and colouring-in to keep the little ones out of mischief.
