The Maritime Museum, the South West’s Visitor Attraction of the Year, offers an inspirational, hands-on learning experience to guides, scouts and cadets of all ages.
All our displays are designed to be interactive and engaging to young people. Key features include amazing artefacts, hands-on exhibits and audio-visual displays exploring stories of wrecks and rescues, fishing, smuggling, historic boat-building and racing. There’s also the opportunity to go ‘under-water’ in our Tidal Zone (one of only three natural underwater galleries in the world), and, after seeing life as a fish, climb the 29m tower to get a birds-eye view of Falmouth. You can also learn to sail in the Waterfront boat pool using our wind powered radio controlled boats.
