Learning for all

uncover our fascinating history

Each year, hundreds of children, parents and teachers come to PK to work with our team and learn from our amazing collection.

We have a regular programme of curriculum-linked workshops for schools and groups, which combine hands-on activities with time to explore the museum.

Alternatively, we can tailor workshops to meet your groups’ needs or specific learning outcomes. You can also extend your PK Porthcurno learning experience with our pre and post-visit activities.
