Explore the very best of Falmouth and Cornwall with local events and celebrations. From exploring the darkest, deepest depths of the Maritime Museum with Monsters of the Deep, to food festivals a long the cornish coastline, there's plenty to plan and do during your visit with us.
Take a deep breath and plunge down to the dark murky depths of the ocean and discover the monsters that lurk beneath. Are there krakens with tentacles two miles long and giant sharks as big as skyscrapers?
Become a 19th century pioneer scientist aboard HMS Challenger and advance our understanding of the sea. 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.
Exhibition running until Dec 22
