National Maritime Museum CornwallFalmouth
Falmouth isn't just about fantastic beaches and boats bobbing in the bay - it has a rich heritage and fascinating history.
Perched on the edge of Falmouth harbour is the National Maritime Museum Cornwall. Winning multiple awards since it opened, the museum is packed to the rafters with all things nautical – clamber around a real search and rescue helicopter, fold yourself into a tiny life raft, or explain the main hall.
Climb to the top of the tower for a birds eye view of Falmouth before heading down to the chilly bottom level where you’ll find yourself under the water level and gazing out at fish swimming through the harbour.
