National Maritime Museum Cornwall are Triple Award Winners, voted Visitor Attraction of the Year two years running at the Cornwall Tourism Awards: also once named Large Visitor Attraction of the Year at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards.

You can see why once you get there with the kids: from the accessible baby care room to the buggy storage, to the fact that the exhibits are designed to be visible at a child's eye height, families can really feel welcome here on their journey to learning!

Their features include a diverse collection of around 140 small craft from Great Britain and overseas, and spans the past 150 years, plus you can pop out on the pontoon and see what the local aquatic traffic is like today!

Or how about the underwater bustle? Have a look through the vast windows of the underwater Tidal Zone section and see what the fishes see!

Other highlights include the Nav Station where you can use interactive exhibits to try sailing and steering a boat, and learn non naughty nautical nuances! Say that 5 times fast!

Plus, The Hold is their largest exhibition space and its contents vary from things like rescue vehicles to artistic installations, so there's always an intriguing bonus set aside for you!
