National Maritime Museum Cornwall to open a Search and Rescue Exhibition

Wednesday, 22 February 2012

National Maritime Museum Cornwall is about to open a brand new exhibition focused on search and rescue and celebrating the work of the RNLI, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force, HM Coastguard and other organisations.

By all accounts this will be one of their largest interactive exhibitions which will include a 70ft Sea King helicopter (of course you get to climb inside) and check out a Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) Atlantic 75 inshore lifeboat. Kids (and adults) will be excited to dress up as a rescue pilot, play with lifesaving equipment or become a virtual lifeguard. Nerds will be happy to explore the history and technological advancements of rescue equipment.

The exhibition opens 16 March 2012 and runs until March 2014.
