“So when is it open?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Having walked up from the beach in the face of a gale and having previously read that it was open we arrived to find that it wasn't - and reading the various advertised opening times left us even more confused,
Peering inside, the museum looked very interesting; the soon- to-be-illegible outdoor information board needs renewing but the site itself appeared to be worth a return some day.

“Wow what an interesting site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

This is where long distance radio communications began. Such an interesting place high on the cliffs overlooking the beautiful Poldhu Cove. It is run by really friendly and helpful volunteers who take the time to explain the various exhibits. Very well worth a visit and there is adjacent parking.

“A real feeling of history on this site.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

The centre was closed but the inscriptions on the monuments gave us the story and a real feeling of history having been made there.

It is awe inspiring to think just how far our technology has come in 112 years.
