The National Maritime Museum in Falmouth is the little brother of the museum in Greenwich. Situated in the centre of Falmouth on the quay, across the opposite the cruise berth, in a new development of shops and restaurants. There is no parking at the centre, although the shopping centre has a small car park but is fairly expensive. Falmouth has a park and ride and park and float just outside the town centre. The museum is open daily from 10am to 5pm. Admission costs £8.75 for adults and £6 for children. If you Park and Float you get 10% discount on your entry. Also if you gift aid your admission fee, you can use your ticket for up to a year. When ... Read the complete review

There are a number interactive ... Read the complete review

Whilst we were in Cornwall on holiday a few weeks ago we visited the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth. We decided to use the park and float at Falmouth, which we actually really enjoyed. It cost £10.00 for a family of four and we went to the museum by bus which was interesting through the little streets and then we came back by boat. It means you park on the outskirts of Falmouth and don't have to find parking spaces and you get a boat ride as well which we all really enjoyed. With the ticket we also had a discount at the Maritime Museum - wether they do that all the time I don't know. At the musuem we paid using club card vouchers (days out ... Read the complete review
