Welcome to CMP
Our purpose is to create positive social change with museums
What is CMP?
CMP is an independent charitable incorporated organisation, formed in 2015 to provide leadership for Cornwall’s museums; to support them, represent them and give them a voice. We are an established sector-leading charity which is not afraid to think differently.
Our Impact with museums
We think museums enrich people’s lives. They play a critical role in linking our past to the present, whilst helping us to shape the future. Museums enable greater understanding and empathy by providing a view of the world through other people’s eyes. They can be a focal point for communities, bringing people together, promoting wellbeing and tackling loneliness. They are an important, and often overlooked, part of our civic infrastructure and they contribute millions every year to their local economies.
