Escape from Treasure Island! – Summer Holidays

An illustration of a giant octopus with a boat and a pirate crew battling the octopus

Monday 22 July – Sunday 1 September

Will they outsmart the hungry gorilla intent on eating them, evade the clutches of the ghostly phantom zombie, avoid the slithering tentacles of the giant kraken AND escape the deadly jaws of the island’s resident crocodile? Will the treasure finally be theirs or will the dastardly pirate get his hands on the ultimate prize? Find out this summer at National Maritime Museum Cornwall.

Treasure Map Trail

Hunt around the Museum and find stamps to create your very own treasure map. Add them to your trail and decide where to hide your pirate plunder!

Make & Take

Make your very own paper pirate ship, fashion a pirate hat, make a flying parrot wrist puppet or colour in and decorate your treasure map trail.
