Humphry Davy Experiment A public consultation by a local group who are keen to see the life of Penzance son Sir Humphry Davy being celebrated in the town. This pop-up completely transformed one of our shops and had interactive displays of his chemical experiments, creating an exciting and educational space for people to drop in off the high street. Originally focused on the creation of a Humphry Davy Museum, the group has now broadened its interests to the creation of a Humphry Davy Quarter in the town.
