GWITHTI HELLYS A' GAS DYNNERGH!
Welcome to Helston Museum!
"A Treasure Trove of Memories and Curiosities!"
Explore 19th and 20th century Cornish culture and industry in the heart of Helston.Browse our spectacular collections housed in Helston's historic market buildings - much bigger than it looks from the outside!
Explore the way our grandparents and parents lived and wonder at the way things were done only a few decades ago.
Our digitisation website is now LIVE!
Thanks to Heritage Lottery Funding we were able to undertake a huge project to digitise our entire photographic collection. We wanted to make them more easily accessible for everyone and the resulting website is a fantastic new resource for anyone wanting to research the history of the area or if you just want to take a look back at Helston through the years. The project, although officially at its end is an ever evolving one as our collection grows and new photographs are discovered.
