About the National Maritime Museum Cornwall


An independent museum located on Discovery Quay in Falmouth, the National Maritime Museum Cornwall celebrates the incredible maritime history of Falmouth, Cornwall and how the sea influences global culture.

The museum houses 15 galleries, over five floors of interactive exhibits. With a collection that spans The National Small Boat collection, exciting temporary exhibitions, artworks, maps and charts, memorabilia and other objects, and a boatbuilding workshop, there is already plenty to explore at this museum, which won The Telegraph Family Friendly Museum of the Year award in 2014.

The National Maritime Museum Cornwall is an Arts Council-funded Major Partner Museum, under the umbrella of the Cornwall Museum Partnership. Its work is supported by a wide range of generous supporters, including the Heritage Lottery Fund, the John Ellerman Foundation, and Cornwall Council.
