National Maritime Museum Cornwall


National Maritime Museum Cornwall champions local and national seafaring heritage, with exciting permanent and temporary exhibitions, and a 100 foot Look Out Tower.

Among paintings and photographs, telescopes, logbooks, whale-tooth carvings and lifebelts, you'll find Old Stan's salmon fishing boat and Ellen MacArthur's Christmas tree. Go underwater in the Tidal Zone; try steering a boat in the Nav Station; and enjoy breathtaking views of the harbour, docks and estuary from the Look Out.
