Porthcurno Telegraph Museum

Porthcurno Telegraph Museum tells a story of British international telegraph cable communications from the 1850s to the 1950s. It shows how the Victorian Internet was created and how Britain's international links were protected during the second world war. Housed in an underground building built during the war, it also includes displays on the history of radio and the social history of Porthcurno.
