Cornwall

Cornwall is a land of museums and many of these are run entirely by volunteers and enthusiasts. Reflecting a strong sense of place, these museums and their objects tell the story of Cornwall and its people from prehistory to the present day through the things our ancestors left behind.

Objects from Cornwall’s museums are featured on the BBC’s History of the World in 100 Objects website – click here to see them.

South West Fed County Rep: Verity Anthony

Our County Reps provide a communication channel between members and the South West Fed Board. They have a slot at county group meetings to provide information and news, and can feed back information to our Board about things you tell them, such as training needs, local news, meeting dates, successes, challenges etc.

Verity is based at Cornwall's Regimental Museum, Bodmin

Contact Verity by email: collections@cornwalls-regimentalmuseum.org


Museum Development Officers (SWMDP)

Museum Development Officers are managed by the South West Museum Development Programme and provide a wide range of free support, advice and help to the museums in their area. They co-ordinate meetings, visit museums, help with writing policies and grant applications and are a fund of useful information on everything to do with running a museum.
