Museum History

The Perranzabuloe Museum Trust was established in 1986 to preserve the history of the parish with a display in the Oddfellows Hall in Perranporth.  In 2004, the Trust was able to purchase this historic building and develop a research area together with larger storage facilities and workrooms.

Our collection includes objects, maps and photographs and provides an insight into the life and history of our parish from its earliest beginnings, the arrival of St. Piran, the growth of fishing, farming and mining, through to the tourist destination it has become today. Each year we produce special exhibitions allowing us to share new acquisitions or examine local themes, events and culture in more depth.
