Find Accommodation near 'The National Maritime Museum Falmouth'


The Museum has excellent access throughout and offers a whole days entertainment for visitors of all ages. We can highly recommend this attraction.

The Museum is on five floors with ramps and lifts throughout but there is only lift access to the 'look out' on the highest level 3 and below tide on the lowest levels.

There is space set aside for wheelchair users in the Lecture Theatre.
