Valley Tales and Trails

Dog with lead

Explore our ‘Valley Tales & Trails’ exhibition, and find out how Porthcurno’s role in shaping modern communication affected the local landscape and community. Be guided by stories of Porthcurno’s lasting legacy, and connect the outdoor landscape with the richly told stories inside the Museum.

The Valley Trail takes in the coastal valley of Porthcurno and surrounding clifftops and fields. Put on your walking shoes and venture forth to uncover the secret history of this seemingly sleepy Cornish village.

Explore the ‘Valley Tales’ exhibition inside the Museum, and visualise how the Valley looked in days gone by. Immerse yourself in the indoor exhibition, where the past is brought to life by rich stories from those that lived and breathed the communication revolution.

Pick up your trail map from the Museum’s reception. The ‘Valley Trail’ is free, and the indoor ‘Valley Tales’ exhibition is included with Museum admission.
