Under the Sea

1 January — 30 June 2009

National Maritime Museum-Exploring man's voyage into the deep with 'Under the Sea'.

National Maritime Museum Cornwall is known for celebrating activity on the water and the Museum in Falmouth will be exploring man's voyage into the deep with 'Under the Sea'.

Diving deep into a world of shipwrecks, free diving, submarines, sport and commercial diving, physiology, underwater warfare and photography, this new exhibition promises you an experience under the water without getting wet.

One of the major exhibits is a replica of the very first submarine. Made of wood and designed in 1620 by Cornelius Drebble, this four oared, underwater rowing machine has to be seen to be believed and is the beginning of a journey through time focusing on the advancement of technology in submarines and submersibles.
