The advice from the Government COBRA Meeting on Monday 16 March urges everyone to avoid unnecessary social contact. Obviously this advice has a huge impact on National Maritime Museum Cornwall and our priority has to be to protect our visitors, volunteers and staff. In light of this we have reluctantly taken the decision to temporarily close the Museum to visitors until we are advised otherwise.
Take a look at the exciting things to do at National Maritime Museum Cornwall this spring and summer.
