Mini Monsters of the Not So Deep Trail

White text against a blue-green background reads 'mini monsters of the not so deep online trail!'. Three circular photos show hands holding crabs up to the camera. Along the bottom of the image is sand.

Welcome to the first stop

At this first stop we’re taking a look at a few of the most common creatures you can find in local rock pools.

Stop two

Keeping yourself and the creatures you find safe is very important when rock pooling. At stop two we explore safety as well as the equipment you’ll need to make the most of you time on the coast.

It’s time for stop three

Not far from the Museum there are lots of great places to rock pool. Here are three  of our top locations in Falmouth.

The forth stop

On the final stop we head inside National Maritime Museum Cornwall to explore some of the intriguing spaces, exhibitions and objects.

Thank you to The Rock Pool Project for offering their expertise. Find all the videos from the trail (and more!) on National Maritime Museum Cornwall’s YouTube channel.
