National Maritime Museum Cornwall, Falmouth

4.1
#2 of 105 in Museums in Cornwall
Inside a building near the harbor designed by M.J. Long rests the National Maritime Museum Cornwall. The current museum is the product of collaboration between two maritime museums in the area. In 2003, these two museums combined resources to open the museum without direct government support. In the galleries, you'll find exhibits telling stories of fishing, boatbuilding, wrecks, and the immigrants who helped shape the city of Cornwall into the diverse harbor town it is today. The Bartlett Library inside the museum is a center for maritime research and holds many of the original port records in its archives.

  • Very well stocked with displays especially about the Titanic. Plenty to see and do. Give yourself at least three hours. The entrance ticket although a little high, permits you to return as many times as you like within 12 months. Living in Lancaster makes this little problematic.
  • Multi-storied museum that kids and adults will all love. We liked the observation deck the most and the man who I think was a volunteer up there offered lots of knowledge about the shipping in the port as well as the history of shipping there. The basement is an underwater observation space which kids will love.
