Explore the rich maritime heritage of Cornwall
Book your visit today
The Maritime 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.
As part of a pre-booked self-directed group visit, we offer:
- Special education discount price of £4.95 per student
- Free visits to supervising adults and group leaders
- Risk assessment advice
- Dedicated base area to eat packed lunches (subject to availability)
A visit typically lasts upwards of 2 hours.
We are currently revising our provisions for overseas students so please check regularly for any updates.
