Climb Aboard! We’re one of Britain’s most family friendly museums

Alfie and Noah on the Liferaft at The National Maritime Museum Cornwall in Falmouth

We’re renowned for being a museum that says ‘Climb Aboard’ rather than ‘Don’t touch!’


These social media posts show why we’re such a family favourite…

Video: Top 10 Things to do with kids at the museum!


This video sums up in 60 seconds why we scooped The Telegraph Britain’s Most Family Friendly Museum Award a few years back… and why we’re always a family favourite every school holiday 🙂

Every year our Learning team put on 118 days of activities, from story-telling to make-and-takes, dress up and lots more.

Don’t forget you can pay once, get in free all year!
