STEAM sessions are held monthly during term time and provide children with an opportunity to explore scientific ideas, tackle problem-solving and learn the importance of teamwork. Sessions are held in the Clore Learning Space opposite the museum car park. Museum entry not required. No booking required.
Kids of all ages can drop in to our ‘PK Pioneers’ family activities sessions, held on specified dates during the school holidays. Sessions are held in Eastern House and are free with museum entry.
Pre-booking is strongly recommended to guarantee museum entry.
Talk & Tea
In 2019, residents from St Mary’s Haven Care Home, Penzance met with the children from St Buryan Academy Primary School for an Intergenerational Project. The residents shared memories of how they used to communicate and keep in touch with families, friends and at work. With help from ‘Tough Dough’ artists Alessandra Ausenda and Lizzie Black, the children made drawings and developed characters from the residents’ memories. These drawings and characters have been brought to life in a short-animated film. We hope you enjoy watching it!
