Way back in 2011 we did a small piece of MLA funded consultancy for the Royal Cornwall Museum, and since then we’ve been hoping we might get to work with them on a bigger project. We were delighted therefore when they approached us to work with them on a new web & digitisation project, launching in 2016.

The Museum, based in Truro, recently received a grant from the Esmee Fairburn Foundation to create an on-line searchable database of the Museum’s vast photographic collection and to redevelop a new website for the Museum.

The new site launched in January 2016.
