About

A voyage of discovery

National Maritime Museum Cornwall is home to 15 galleries, over five floors: exploring the influence of the sea on history and culture.

Falmouth is a fitting setting for this journey of discovery to begin. National Maritime Museum Cornwall is located on aptly named Discovery Quay, and is a vast, iconic building, home to exciting exhibitions and a wide range of galleries. There’s plenty to see and do, and it’s very family friendly too.

Monsters of the Deep

On until January 2022

Monsters of the Deep is the latest major exhibition from National Maritime Museum Cornwall.  It explores centuries-old myths and legends, when chance sightings and odd appearances led to tall tales of deep sea creatures. It examines how, even today, these stories continue to capture imaginations, fuelled by fake news and conspiracy theories. Visitors can become a 19th century pioneer scientist aboard HMS Challenger to advance our understanding of the sea, where you can handle real objects, try out the microscopes and understand what it felt like to be an explorer aboard a floating laboratory. Progress to the modern day and discover how today’s scientists explore the seas aboard submersibles, going deeper and further into uncharted waters. Get lost amongst specially selected specimens, the real monsters of the deep – more beautiful and fantastical than any of us could have imagined.
