A dancing mermiad at the Into The Deep exhibition at National Maritime Museum Cornwall

Fantastic museum exhibitions to take the kids to in Cornwall this summer


Cornwall’s museums often have some wonderfully creative and imaginative events on each year and now that they are allowed to reopen once again there are some fascinating stories and shows on offer which the family can enjoy this summer.

 

 

Yskynna perform Into The Deep at the National Maritime Museum, Cornwall

 

Watch a dancing mermaid…

Into The Deep Blue is a new dance and storytelling show being held at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, in Falmouth, until 3rd September, 2021. Performed by aerial dance company, Yskynna, the show takes place amongst the Flying Flotilla high up in the museum and brings to life sea creatures with dance, music and storytelling. You can watch a mermaid swims and dives high in the air and see an anglerfish scuttle around the building. The show takes place from Monday to Friday at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. It’s free as part of your ticket into the museum.

A llama from Llamaland, Cornwall

 

Do some Llama Life Drawing

The Royal Cornwall Museum certainly had their original thinking caps on when they came up with this idea. Every Wednesday throughout the summer from 2pm to 4pm you can join in a life drawing session of real llamas from Llama Land. The workshops are free with entry. The museum are also running a series of Messy Mornings (age 5 and over) and Crafternoon workshops  (age 2 to 5) where kids can do a series of workshops ranging from pressing flowers to hedgehog handprints.

A clay Cornish Piskie eating a pasty by artist Zenna Tagney

 

Learn how to make clay Cornish Pixies

On different days throughout the summer (10th and 17th August) local ceramic artist Zenna Tagney will be on site at Wheal Martyn Museum near St Austell creating a gang of clay piskies – ‘Buccawidden’ – made from porcelain with local china clay. You can watch the piskies being made. On other days you can make your own clay creations using china clay (you buy a portion for 50p from reception) and using twigs, leaves and stones that you find to make your own clay creation. There’s no need to book or pay an extra fee for watching Zenna making the piskies other than your entrance fee to Wheal Martyn.
