Telegraph Museum closes for development
Telegraph Museum Porthcurno

By: Porthcurno Telegraph Museum
Added: 17 September 2013

Porthcurno Telegraph Museum has now closed temporarily whilst we install new visitor facilities including a new cafe, and exciting new exhibitions. This is work we wouldn’t be able to do whilst visitors are enjoying exhibitions and activities.

We will re-open in summer 2014 and look forward to welcoming you to the new museum at that time. In the meantime, there are lots of ways to stay updated with events and activities, updates from the development and sneak previews, and advance information about our 2014 re-opening events:
