The Porthcurno Telegraph Museum was recently ranked as one of the Top 50 Museums in the UK by the Independent Newspaper. The first Trans- Atlantic telegraph cables were laid from Porthcurno in the late 1800’s. Visit the museum which also includes underground tunnels excavated in 1941, to see how this small Cornish village played a major part in World telecommunications and its vital role in the 2nd World War. Great for children & adults alike.
