National maritime museum, Falmouth, Cornwall

Falmouth maritime centre display

The museum is a great day out for all the family, it even has a tower which at the top gives fabulous views across Falmouth harbour and marina, while at the bottom its actually underwater with windows showing life on the seabed! The displays show much history around small boats and the equipment used. Numerous small craft and sailing boats hang from the impressive main hall ceiling, and you can walk around the outside of the main hall as the walkway spirals up through the floors of varying exhibitions. Currently there is a fabulous Viking exhibition which includes a full size longboat that you can walk around!
