Exhibitions

Edith Williams’ Trousseau Online Exhibition

The Edith Williams collection is very fragile and vulnerable to light, so is not able to be on display very often. We're delighted to now have digital 3D scans of Edith Williams' trousseau from the late 19th century, which are featured in this online exhibition thanks to Cornwall Museums Partnership and Art Fund.

Fragile Planet

Open now until 24 December, Fragile Planet is a major exhibition of watercolours by renowned artist Tony Foster that illustrate the precariousness of wilderness and endangered environments around the world.

Climate Conversations

Climate Conversations is an ever-growing exhibition featuring community responses to climate-themed objects from the museum's collection.
