National Maritime Museum Cornwall


The National Maritime Museum, located in Falmouth, aims to highlight the maritime heritage of Cornwall and the role that the sea plays in the lives of many.

The museum offers a mix of conservation, research, education and entertainment to ensure that visitors of all ages come away from their time in Falmouth with an enhanced knowledge of the county’s close ties to all things maritime.

The museum plays host to National Small Boat Collection, which contains vessels of 30ft long and under from the UK and around the world, the Cornish Maritime Collection, a selection of objects, pictures, models and archives relating to the history of Cornwall and the sea, and around 100 works of marine-related art.
