Whats coming up at the museum:
Joining Forces Exhibition This exhibition joins two strands of the Joining Forces project: the creative workshops; and the stories, research and artefacts collected by a group who have been meeting fortnightly at Helston Museum. The exhibits shown are a selection of the museum’s collection of photographs connected to Culdrose along with some of the group's own military artefacts. The artwork exhibited is the result of nine creative workshops with five different community groups during January and February 2017; two Culdrose Community Centre groups, a group at The Clies, and pupils from both Helston and St Michael's Schools who worked with the artist, Tony Minnion.
