Voting for Cornish Object of the Year 2019 has now closed. The winner will be announced at the Cornwall Heritage Awards, Thursday 21 March.

Our museums are a secret treasure chest of objects that uncover the key to Cornwall’s rich past. Scattered all over the county, our heritage sites contain some of the most exciting and objects that each tell a unique story of times forgotten.

Cornwall has over 100 museums scattered across the county, and every collection has at least one object, that catches your eye, tells an amazing story, and leaves a lasting impression.

This year the museums were tasked with nominating an object that tells an amazing story about Cornwall and is important to Cornish heritage.

Help us to determine the winner by voting in our online poll. The entry with the most votes, as decided by you the public, will be presented with an award at the 2019 Cornwall Heritage Awards.

Voting closes at midnight on Tuesday 12 February 2019.
