Bodmin Keep is now closed until February

Following a challenging 2020, we are very much ready for this fresh new year, when we will be re-opening our doors for February Half Term. 

During the closed period the museum team will be busy working on new displays and creating outreach resources for schools.

Online Shop

We have some great gifts in our online museum shop! From books to children’s gifts and souvenirs.

It’s a great way of supporting the museum when you are unable to visit or need a gift for someone special. 

Note: All orders placed over Christmas will be fulfilled in January. 

Learning Resources

We’ve added lots of content to our website to aid learning and inspiration from home – so do check out our Learning resources page to help with home learning.

Online Tour!

You can still explore our historic building via our online tour.

  • Dog friendly attraction!
  • £6 annual adult pass

Thanks for a great day, my boys loved dressing up and handling the guns.  The museum was very interesting and the boys enjoyed the quiz as we went around.  Lovely staff too, thanks.
