Deep in the dark depths of the ocean bioluminescence dances and shadowy figures loom. Visit Monsters of the Deep at National Maritime Museum Cornwall.

Legends, folklore and modern day science present Monsters of the Deep - you decide what lies beneath!

Take a deep breath and plunge down to the dark murky depths of the ocean and discover the monsters that lurk beneath. Are there krakens with tentacles two miles long and giant sharks as big as skyscrapers?

Explore the centuries-old myths and legends, when chance sightings and odd appearances led to tall tales of deep sea creatures. Learn how, even today, these stories continue to capture imaginations, fulled by fake news and conspiracy theories.

“This is a show to plumb the imagination. For the adults it might be almost as philosophical as it is fun for the kids … I took two 11-year-olds along and the pair of them couldn’t talk about anything else for the entire journey home” - The Times.

This exhibition will run until December 2022.
