Search and Rescue, the 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 journey into the role of the maritime rescue services, celebrating the work of the RNLI, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and HM Coastguard.
Objects of epic proportions include a 70ft Sea King helicopter, kindly loaned by the MOD, one of the Museum's most ambitious installations.
At the heart of the exhibition is an interactive coastguard operations room. Put yourself in the coastguard hot seat and make the life or death decision to bring in the right service for the rescue and begin your journey through the incredible work and lives of the coastguard rescue, air and sea rescue teams.

I have used this museum for 7 years. The annual ticket is really good value and my children love this exhibition as much now when they can debate the perils of the sea as they did when they were toddlers clambering in and out of the lifeboat. Each time we come they learn something more or something else within the content makes sense. So much of this museum is interactive that it really is an action lacked day. Beware if weekend weather is really foul it will be v v busy.
