THE MUSEUM TO HAVE FUN IN WHATEVER THE WEATHER!

Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2013 the multi-award winning National Maritime Museum Cornwall has 15 galleries, over five floors beautifully illustrating the past, present and future of this island nation. Winner of Large Attraction of the Year at the 2012 Cornwall Tourism Awards, the Museum features a number of stunning exhibitions dedicated to the sea, boats and Cornwall.

The blockbuster Search & Rescue exhibition invites you to enter the world of the maritime rescue services where ordinary people lead extraordinary lives, risking their lives to save yours. Experience the drama of a rescue, climb aboard a Sea King helicopter, meet the crews, explore a lifeboat, hit the ‘beach’ on a quad bike, revisit rescues from the past and discover what it takes to bring you home safely when the worst happens at sea and around our coast.

More than just a Museum about boats, explore the stories of the people who used these vessels and the adventures they had in them. Ascend the 100ft Look Out tower and see Falmouth’s famous harbour from the skies, then descend into the Tidal Zone to appreciate one of only three natural underwater galleries in the world - and the cormorants, seals, shrimp, bass and mullet swimming by its epic 22ft tall tidal windows. Be spellbound by a sky filled with a flotilla of flying boats and lose yourself in a world of maritime history.

With hands-on activities, talks, lectures, workshops, rotating events and exhibitions, there’s so much happening, don’t miss your chance for a visit. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall is the Museum to have fun in whatever the weather!

Garden Glory There are more than 70 superb gardens in Cornwall and the milder year-round climate is perfect for growing ‘sub-tropical’ plants – many of which cannot grow anywhere else in the UK – and Cornwall abounds with lush gardens.
