The National Maritime Cornwall in Falmouth is not only a landmark, but is also a watermark, reflecting Falmouth’s position as one of the world’s premier harbour and sailing venues. It is the world’s largest maritime museum and the exhibits tell incredible stories of bravery, survival, discovery and adventure.

The spectacular harbour side building is designed by award winning architects, Long & Kentish, to blend with and enhance the surroundings. Its exterior oak cladding reflects the history of wooden boat sheds, whilst it’s shape and form take into consideration the location between Falmouth’s historical buildings, ships and warehouses surrounding the famous docks. Internally the building has been cleverly built to bring the histories of boats, maritime themes and Cornwall’s dramatic history back to life.

Children especially enjoy the hands on interactive exhibitions and displays. Test your skills driving the model boats, and exploring the basement, which is below sea level, from where you can watch the fish swim by. There is often a ship moored against the museum, perfect for exploring and pretending to be pirates!

The National Maritime Museum Cornwall is a multi-award winning museum, having won Visitor Attraction of the year, twice. With its fabulous exhibitions and stunning galleries it will appeal to everyone.
