The Royal Cornwall Museum’s re-developed mineral gallery will enjoy its official relaunch tomorrow following a comprehensive transformation.

The 200-year-old museum is the caretaker of over 3,000 years of geological and mining history, housing over one million artefacts including a globally significant collection of over 12,000 mineral samples.

The gallery has been closed since January 2024, and the newly imagined space has been designed in consultation with the museum’s visitors in a bid to bring the story of the specimens to life, making geology accessible and engaging to an eclectic audience from local schools to scientists and academics.
