Housed in Helston's former Market House and Drill Hall, the museum building itself offers a valuable insight into the history and architecture of the town. Although the museum was founded in 1949, the building was originally designed as the town's Market House in 1837, with two separate buildings - one for butter and eggs, the other the meat market, and retains the original sloping granite floor. As the museum was originally three separate buildings it is a lot bigger than most people expect!
The museum houses a large collection of objects from varying periods in history which have passed through numerous hands…will we find evidence of their previous owners? Many of these objects have tragic and in some cases mysterious pasts!
On the eve of Halloween between 10pm and 2am, (during the psychic hours) try and catch a glimpse of what might have been. Are there other worldly forces at play?
