The Museum is now open to visitors. Read about visiting during Coronavirus.
Through our exhibitions programme we aspire to bring new and diverse perspectives to maritime issues, and highlight their relevance to the present day. We also bring rare objects from around the world to Cornwall to tell local, national and international stories.
Your admission fee is reinvested back into the museum to enhance and grow our work, which also includes our family learning activities; our award winning education programmes; our boat building and conservation; and our work to preserve and promote Cornwall’s maritime heritage.
We thank you for your support and hope you enjoy your visit.
We are an independent museum and charity, reliant on our admission fees and gift aid, as we are not government funded when it comes to our day to day running. All our revenue is reinvested back into the museum to enhance and grow our activity. We also rely on volunteers who give over 30,000 hours every year.
