The National Maritime Museum is based in Falmouth. Working with the Maritime Museum in Greenwich London, the teams work tirelessly to raise awareness for maritime conservation, and continued observation.
The group have a vast collection of maps, memorabilia, charts and famous maritime artwork. Historic vessels are displayed, along with those of recent time, that have taken part in races, hold celebrity status and others that are celebrated through fundraising efforts.
The museum works closely with Falmouth University and Cornish schools, providing a massive theory and practical platform for assignments, assessments and education.
Of late some Maritime treasures have been displayed, including Nelson’s uniform, the very uniform he was wearing when fatally wounded at Trafalgar.
The Museum has a restaurant, easy access and parking. it is also positioned on the edge of the main town of Falmouth. You may find time for an ice cream on the sea front!
