Join the festivities at National Maritime Museum Cornwall as we celebrate Christmas with a nautical twist. With fun events and activities for the whole family to enjoy, there's something for everyone .

The return of Daisy Belle to the Museum marks the start of the celebrations. Come and visit her in the Main Foyer as we deck her out in glistening lights, our take on a traditional Christmas tree.

Visit our specially commissioned packet ship lantern as she hangs from the ceiling in the Main Hall amongst the Flotilla.

Join in our festive Make and Take workshops and create macramé lanterns in the lead up to Christmas. After Christmas participate in a Make and Take art installation project, making glowing wish boats to display under the packet ship lantern. Create two, one to take home and one for the Museum,

Don't forget to follow our glistening light trail around the museum, find them all the lights to claim a prize.
