Charlie Chough is on the hunt to find out what makes a proper Cornish Christmas. Explore the Museum and help little Charlie discover fun things to do in Cornwall during this special time of year. The beautiful trail has been created in partnership with Cornwall-based illustrator Bex Bourne.
Explore 15 galleries over four floors, jump aboard boats, climb the 100-foot Lookout Tower, watch boat-building, go underwater in the Tidal Zone, discover stories of ocean adventures and survival, and sail miniature boats on the boat pool. What’s more, the scenic Waterfront Cafe serves tasty treats overlooking an unbeatable view of Falmouth Harbour.
All the Cornish Christmas Activities are FREE as part of the Museum’s annual admission fee. Pay once and get in free for a year.
