Please become a Gift Aid visitor today
Did you know the National Maritime Museum Cornwall is a charity? And that UK taxpayers can make a massive difference to charities like us through the government’s Gift Aid scheme?

If you would like to help the National Maritime Museum Cornwall further please make a donation. If you agree to make a donation and are a UK taxpayer, the government will give us an extra 25% on top of your donation.

If your donation is equal to, or more than, the full price individual admission price you will still be able to get free admission to the Museum for a year and know that you are helping us in our work.
