NMMC set to reopen


The National Maritime Museum Cornwall (NMMC) is set to reopen its doors later this month (July 27), following the easing of lockdown restrictions for cultural spaces.

To ensure the safety and wellbeing of all visitors and staff, the Falmouth museum has implemented a number of new health and safety measures, in line with the latest Government advice, including timed arrival slots and reduced visitor capacity.

Museum director, Richard Doughty, said: “Just like any other museum across the country, the last few months have been some of toughest in our history, and our future, as we emerge into this new landscape, remains unknown.

“However, we open our doors on Monday 27th July with renewed determination and full hearts – we can’t wait to see visitors again and we’re particularly looking forward to sharing Monsters of the Deep, our most ambitious exhibition ever.”
