Vote for your museum

We need your votes!

The museum has applied to Aviva Community Fund for a grant and we need your vote to help our application.

Eleanor Clarke our Public Engagement Coordinator said “Our museum has a long history of leading in technology and connecting communities. Porthcurno is a remote location and access to technology and connectivity can be difficult. We were once the largest telegraph station in the world and we want to create a network for digital collecting and learning. Your vote will help us develop our digital engagement.”

Get Digital in 2019

Planned projects include code clubs for kids, digital outreach for those who want to improve their skills, digital ingenuity and development for careers building and volunteer opportunities within our digital collections program. The museum has been digitising photographs and bound volumes for years now and has a dedicated digitisation space with regular volunteers who photograph and scan our collections.
