Event information:

For 200 years, the RNLI has been saving lives at sea. From wooden lifeboats with oars and sails to today’s motor-powered all-weather lifeboats, crews across the country have been making our waters a safer place.

At Royal Cornwall Museum, we’re teaming up with the RNLI to celebrate their 200th birthday. With dress up, games, and a glimpse into the lives of the crew and roles behind the rescues, our summer exhibition has something for everyone.

Open:  Tuesday – Saturday during term time and open Mondays during Cornish School Holidays
