‘Developing for the Future’ is our bold capital development project to transform the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum, ensuring world-class facilities for world-class heritage. A dynamic new Learning Centre will provide space for formal and informal learning as well as community-led activities. The new Introductory Gallery will help with visitor orientation, and additional gallery spaces will provide room for new permanent and temporary exhibitions and events. A state-of-the-art archive facility will house the historic collecion; identified as being of global significance and interest. Improved visitor facilities and a cafe will provide additional revenue streams to help ensure the long-term sustainability of the Museum.
“The heritage we have here is so important, not only to Cornwall, but globally. Just like Cornwall’s famous mining landscape, the telegraph story is a huge part of Cornish and British heritage that deserves to be celebrated.” – Libby Buckley, Projects Director, Telegraph Museum Porthcurno
