  • Citizen Curators

    Citizen Curators is a work-based training programme in museum awareness and modern curatorial practice aimed at volunteers from our community. We are currently running this project across all seven of the NPO museums.

  • Rural Proofing Resilience

    With funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Cornwall Museums Partnership and South West Museums Development are delivering a unique collaborative programme of leadership and skills development for museums.

  • Cornwall Heritage Awards

    We created the Cornwall Heritage Awards, to celebrate museums and heritage organisations here in Cornwall the Isles of Scilly, and the fantastic achievements of those thatĀ support them.

  • Major Partner Museum

    In 2015 – 2018 we ran the Major Partner Museum project with six museums in Cornwall. We used a network approach to encourage team working and collaboration so that the museums had access to skills and resources to deliver excellence. The evaluation is now available.

  • Trainee Curators

    The Trainee Curators programme was set up to diversify the cultural workforce in Cornish museums and historical sites by offering more accessible opportunities to young people. In turn, diversifying the museums audiences and using their collections more widely. There are 5 trainee curators across 4 museums within the partnership.

    Museums Immersive Network

    The Museums Immersive Network, known as MIN, is a network created in partnership with XpoNorth to build bridges between tech businesses and museums and heritage sites.

    The network has been established to promote and share best practice, new developments, skills development opportunities, and potential collaborations with immersive technology and museums. Immersive technology offers the potential to interpret our collections and share our stories in new, accessible, and interesting ways.
