The Royal Institute of Cornwall was founded in 1818, and since then the organisation has worked tirelessly to make historical and cultural knowledge available to the public. Exhibiting a wide range of artefacts from all over the world, the Royal Cornwall Museum is a true delight, and an educational journey.

The museum offers a Key Stage 2 workshop on Roman history called 'Roman Life'. In the workshop, children will examine original artefacts, estimate their uses, and learn in which room they would be placed in a Roman villa. There is also the opportunity to make a Roman lamp using originals as inspiration.

The museum also offers an artefacts loan box, with supporting resources, for use in the classroom.
