Make a day of it

Our museum stands beside one of Britain’s most spectacular beaches and the world famous Minack open-air theatre, making a visit to Porthcurno the perfect family day out. Walkers can enjoy spectacular views around Porthcurno from the South West Coast Path, from the Minack to Logan Rock, taking in PK Porthcurno on the way.
