Explore the rich maritime heritage of Cornwall

Book your visit today

The Museum offers an inspirational experience to overseas students wishing to explore the rich maritime heritage of Cornwall, or simply to enhance their language skills in an exciting environment. All our displays are designed to be interactive and engaging to young people. Key features include amazing artefacts, hands-on exhibits and audio-visual displays exploring stories of wrecks and rescues, fishing, smuggling, historic boat-building and racing.

There’s also the opportunity to go ‘under-water’ in our Tidal Zone (one of only three natural underwater galleries in the world), and, after seeing life as a fish, climb the 29m tower to get a birds-eye view of Falmouth. You can also learn to sail in the Waterfront boat pool using our wind powered radio controlled boats.
