Ideas of things to do in and around our great little city this October half term.

Royal Cornwall Museum

With over 300,000 heritage objects in the care of the Royal Cornwall Museum,  there is plenty to keep you enthralled during your visit.  You will be able to have a small  foray into their  extensive collection and get inspired with stories of Cornish heritage and links to the world beyond the Tamar.

In addition to their normal exhibitions this half term from 26th to 31st October the Museum would love your little ones to visit them wearing their Halloween costumes.

Each child wearing a costume will receive a bag of make and take goodies for you to craft at home, and share them as they would love to see your creations! Book your FREE admission ticket here
