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.
STEAM Explorers returns in a new way this autumn! This month Paul Tyreman has designed an algorithmic art activity for you to do at home.
We have a few playful activities to do at home over Half Term, or at anytime that you're looking for some inspiration to entertain the kids!
Build a PK Porthcurno Rocket at home and learn how to control its flight from the safety of your home - no rocket fuel required!
Make and create your 2021 'wish in a bubble' and place on your Christmas tree at home, or visit us, 28-31 Dec, and place on our 'wishing line'.

Our STEAM activity for February is to build a paper origami cable ship at home, and to then test out its buoyancy by floating it in a small body of water.
We have a few activities to do this Easter, that take inspiration from the annual sports day that was held in Porthcurno during the 1960s and 1970s.
