Devoted to all things maritime, the NMM gives context to Cornwall's boating and fishing heritage. Don't dismiss it, even if seafaring lore isn't your thing; the purpose-built building is very cool. In the Flotilla Gallery, there are weird and wonderful watercrafts, such as Olympic gold medal–winning boats and a bathtub that one man rowed across the English Channel. There's a lot of interactive stuff for kids, such as a life raft and lifeboat they can climb aboard, and a lighthouse-inspired lookout tower.
