National Maritime Museum

The National Maritime Museum’s purpose is to engage; to entertain; to collect and research our maritime heritage; and to provide enjoyment. All our major projects involve partners in some way or other: individuals and organisations, some local, many from further afield. We always try to think differently and do more for less. The following examples of our work are taken from discussions at our monthly business breakfasts. Please be aware that some of the content may now be out-of-date and is simply a reflection of the discussion which took place at the time.

We want to share with you the story of the people who use small boats and to explore the lives of one community for whom the sea has been an essential lifeline and source of food: the people of Cornwall.

There are events and activities which are constantly changing please click here for current information.
