National Maritime Museum Cornwall


National Maritime Museum Cornwall is a place to enrich your understanding of the sea and Cornwall.

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.

Our award winning learning programme is the largest and most varied of its kind in Cornwall. We offer your school group an unforgettable experience in the museum’s inspirational spaces. Find out about our programmes and workshops and book your session in this section of the website.


Our family-friendly offer

The Museum delivers 118 days of free family learning activities every year.
