Porthleven Exhibition at National Maritime Museum Cornwall

A Journey Through Time

This unique exhibition celebrates the history and stories of several prominent families who have shaped the town. Told from the perspective of the local community, it explores their lives embedded in the history of the area.

Showcasing a number of historic objects, photographs and film footage from the town, the exhibition reveals fascinating and intimate stories spanning over 200 years.

The Museum is delighted to have been able to work so closely with a local community to help them tell their stories.
