Out of School

Join one of our regular out of school and holiday activity sessions. Check our See & Do page for the latest details.

STEAM Explorers

7 to 12 year-olds can join our free ‘STEAM Explorers’ sessions, a morning of hands-on making activities that explore the realms of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths. 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.

Pop Up PK

Kids of all ages can drop in to our Pop Up PK family activities, held on specific dates during the school holidays. Look out for fun things to do popping up in the museum, in the gardens or even on Porthcurno beach!

Free with admission. 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!
