The Telegraph Museum tells the fascinating story of the dawn of the age of worldwide communications from the very first global network to the modern day web of fibre optic cables.

Find out about the science that has made it all possible, the people who put the ideas into production, and how the world was changed forever… and discover Porthcurno’s amazing place at the very centre of the communications revolution.

Visit us and uncover Cornwall’s best kept secret…
