The Falmouth Aquarium is a new facility in the heart of Falmouth - your window to the wonders of the ocean.



Falmouth Aquarium

Natural wonders. Transforming experiences. A community connected to the underwater world, far different from our own...

We are your window to the wonders of the ocean...

The Falmouth Aquarium is a new three storey facility in the heart of Falmouth. Visitors enter the realm of coral reefs, where people are put eye-to-eye with a host of creatures including seahorses, eels and frogfish.

You can even meet the star of Finding Nemo in his natural environment in our clownfish and anemone tank.

Marine life closer to home is the highlight of the aquarium’s second floor exhibits. Here, visitors can explore Cornish habitats including under the pier, the rocky shore and the Helford River and you'll come face to face with a large sea porpoise skeleton

The third floor is dedicated to educating the public on a range of issues facing our oceans and the wildlife that inhabit them.

You can learn about work being undertaken in Cornwall to monitor the mighty but peaceful basking shark, or learn about the future of our fisheries if unsustainable fishing practices continue to prevail.

There is a new x-ray exhibit, showing what sharks, eels, fish and other marine species look like on the inside

At Falmouth Aquarium, you'll learn about millions of years of ocean history through a variety of fossils, see marine mammal bones and find out what is the largest living organism in the world

Falmouth Aqaurium are a charity, not a business,with a mission to educate the general public on the various challenges facing our marine environment both now and in the future.
