National Maritime Museum Cornwall
YOUR PERFECT DAY OUT!
Celebrating the sea, boats and Cornwall and its 10th birthday in 2013, this multi award winning Museum (it’s just won gold for Visitor Attraction of the Year at the Cornwall Tourism Awards) not only has 15 galleries, over five floors beautifully illustrating the past, present and future of this island nation but also offers a number of stunning exhibitions.
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.
Ascend the 100ft Look-out Tower and see Falmouth’s famous harbour from the skies, then descend into the depths of 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 7m high tidal windows.
Be absorbed by a sky filled with a flotilla of flying boats, lose yourself in a world of maritime history that focuses on the people, their lives, their stories and their artefacts that have shaped our nautical past.
With hands-on activities, talks, lectures, workshops, rotating events and exhibitions, there’s so much happening, don’t miss your chance for a visit. You will find more than you might expect.
Open daily 10am-5pm, seven days a week. Closed Christmas Day & Boxing Day
