Cornwall's Award Winning Visitor Attraction
Runs until 5th January 2015
Search and Rescue, the new blockbuster exhibition from National Maritime Museum Cornwall invites you to enter the world of the rescue services where ordinary people lead extraordinary lives, risking their life to save yours.
The exhibition takes you on an interactive, stimulating and emotive journey into the role of the maritime rescue services, celebrating the work of the RNLI, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force, HM Coastguard and other organisations.
Objects of epic proportions include a 70ft Sea King helicopter, kindly loaned by the MOD, one of the Museum’s most ambitious installations. Uniquely painted in the colours of both the Royal Navy and RAF Search and Rescue (SAR) services (red and grey one side and yellow on the other) it offers you the rare opportunity to climb inside, without having to be rescued. Dress as a pilot, listen to accounts from the crew and from those that have been rescued, explore their lifesaving equipment and discover the world of the Royal Navy and RAF SAR teams.
Throughout the life of the exhibition there will be a number of events including air sea rescue demonstrations, ‘meet the crew’ days and opportunities to climb aboard an RNLI all-weather lifeboat. Keep an eye on our website to find out what’s on when.
Especially for Halloween, join our eerie evening tour around Pendennis Castle. Hear tales of dark deeds, ghostly apparitions and scary happenings.
We aim to enable visitors to see and touch owls at close proximity under staff supervision as well as providing a talk and guided tour of the centre to all visitors.
