The Royal Institution of Cornwall – the organisation that owns and manages the Royal Cornwall Museum and Courtney Library in Truro – was founded in 1818 for ‘the promotion of knowledge in natural history, ethnology and the fine and industrial arts, especially in relation to Cornwall’. This is still at the heart of everything it does today.


The magnificent granite-fronted building on River Street is a place to enjoy, explore and discover Cornwall's history and its connections to the world:

  • The rich pre-history of Cornwall

  • Lifestyle and culture of Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome

  • Beautiful art from Cornwall and beyond

  • Amazing minerals from Cornwall's mining landscape

  • Cornish science and invention

  • A unique archive of Cornish history

There is always something for visitors of all ages, with wonderful permanent interactive galleries, explorer backpacks and hands-on exhibits.

The Royal Institution of Cornwall will be 200 years old in 2018. As a charity it relies on the generosity of individuals to help ensure the care of these Cornish collections for the people of Cornwall and for visitors to the region.
