The Telegraph Museum, Porthcurno

The Telegraph Museum, Porthcurno

Just around the corner from the Minack Theatre in Porthcurno is the superb Telegraph Museum. Discover the fascinating story of how submarine cables from a Cornish beach changed the world. Many people have told us this has unexpectedly been the highlight of their trip. A fascinating look at how communication took place before email and mobile phone had even been thought of. Be sure to take a wander down toward the beach and see the hut where the cable actually arrives on the land as well.

A very hands on experience and well worth every penny for all ages! You can learn morse code, send messages by flags and telegrams and the World War II tunnels are very interesting with the chance to go out through the escape tunnel. The holds a designated collection of objects including the only complete working telegraph station left in the world.

You park in the car park next to the museum and then walk through the beautifully tended gardens as you walk up towards the entrance (3 mins). As you enter the museum there is a wonderful shop that sells brilliant things for all ages - all great quality with various prices to suit all budgets. The cafe is great - well priced and a really good menu and the staff very friendly.
