ONE of the things which can be very frustrating in a museum is if it is not well laid out.
This can leave you struggling your way round or mystified as to what message the museum is trying to get across.
There is no such difficulty with the Royal Cornwall Museum which offers a compact layout which is easy to follow and which informs visitors in a simple but effective manner.
When I visited I paid £5 to get in and then followed advice by starting in the geology section which had an extensive array of minerals of all colours, shapes and sizes.
It detailed some of Cornwall's rocks and gave the visitor a good idea of how the area was formed.
I was in Truro so it was natural that another section should be about the town while other rooms and galleries dealt with everything from wildlife and ceramics to paintings and even Egyptology.
Staff were a cut above excellent and were so helpful that I was given not just a plan of the museum but a very useful map of the town to help find my way about as well.
When I came to leave I felt not only that I'd had good value for money but that I'd been entertained and helped as well.
You can't ask much more than that from a museum and I got a lot more from the RCM than from some of the other museums I have been in. A high quality attraction.

A lovely view of Cornish history through the ages. Covering everything from flora & fauna to space travel. Worth a visit & entry fee to keep it available for future generations.

Thank you for such a warm and friendly welcome you gave us when we returned to the museum today - keen to finish off the displays we'd not viewed a few days ago ... it really made our day!

We both enjoyed wandering around the museum, following a carefully organised one way system. The collections on show were interesting and set out in such a way that there was something for everyone.

Interpretation is just right - and the temporary exhibitions were very interesting indeed.

Covid security was excellent throughout and much thought has gone into making the area a safe space for all.

Thank you for SUCH a nice museum.

That our tickets are valid for a year is brilliant!!!

Great way to spend an hour or so on a day trip to Truro.
Enjoyed rocks/fossil exhibits, art, ceramics, Egyptology, local history & a gallery showing artists” responses to isolation & confinement.
It would be handy to have a little guide (or an app) showing a plan if the layout & perhaps the highlights if you are short of time.
A beautiful light airy building with what looks tone a pretty café (but didn’t try the latter so can’t comment on that).
Staff were friendly and welcoming. We would definitely recommend a visit.
All the relevant Covid safety measures are in place so we felt safe and comfortable.

Visited RCM in June and kept ticket so a free return and worth it. The mineral collection is the biggest I know for Cornwall. There is also one (free) at Penryn campus. The museum as others has a large store of objects; I know having donated to it. I would like to see the upstairs galleries dedicated to rolling exhibitions of them. I have an interest in that, because of my finds and others that I know of. Wanted to subscribe; hence donate to pay for influence but the subscribe page on the website was not available. Graham Hill

Loads to see and learn about Cornish history, art, industry and its people. A stunning minerals room, some fantastic pottery and paintings. Friendly staff and thoroughly recommended if you are in Cornwall.

Unusually and unlike the cathedral this museum is not free to enter. We were offered a friendly welcome in the museum itself. There were a variety of interesting exhibits and we were able to see everything despite the school parties. All exhibits well explained and labelled. The cafe was full but we only wanted a sandwich which they didn’t appear to serve!

Sadly the museum is currently closed for repair work but as they say about the V & A cafe, great cafe with rather a nice museum attached. Have been to the museum many times & the permanent collection is great as are the temporary exhibitions. Looking forward to the reopening. The cafe is on2 levels with 2 serving areas with good range of hot drinks & cakes & varied lunch menu. An additional bonus is the art shop at the back of the cafe which in addition to artists' materials has a great stock of unusual toys & games & stationery.

It's a museum, somewhere to visit on a rainy afternoon, but slightly disappointing, especially as the charge an entrance fee.
