Penlee House Museum and Gallery is a delightful find - a fascinating display in a beautiful building, itself set in the lovely Penlee Gardens. The main gallery exhibitions change every 10 weeks or so, but always feature artists with a local connection, and there is also a permanent display of works selected from the Penlee House store of Newlyn School artwork - which usually includes pictures by Stanhope Forbes, his wife Elizabeth, Walter Langely, Norman Garstin and Harold Harvey. These are excellent paintings in their own right, but also a fascinating reflection of the social history of the local communities between about 1880 and 1930 - to which the gallery stewards can usually add colourful and often personal details. The archaeology and social history museums are likewise rich in information about life in earlier times in magical West Penwith and well worth a leisurely browse.
