Kristy Turner, Museum Manager & Curator

Kristy is our Museum Manager/Curator and has a BSc (Hons) degree in Textiles and Design. On graduating from university Kristy enjoyed an exciting career as a fashion buyer, travelling the world, creating ranges for various high street stores. When her daughter was born in 1998 she moved to Cornwall where she has since been involved in property renovation, interior design, holiday letting and owning a successful restaurant with her partner.

For five and a half years she enjoyed being the House Steward at Castle Drogo and there she gained a great deal of knowledge through the wonderful National Trust training courses. She is now using this knowledge to care for our Museum and to make it an amazing place to visit and is hoping to share it with a world wide audience as well as making it a real hub of the local community.
