Charlestown Shipwreck Museum

Standing over the historic port of Charlestown, The Shipwreck Treasure Museum shows a unique insight into the history of maritime adventures and misfortunes. It is a museum of peril and possibility, where a seabed of salvaged storied waits to be explored.

Discover 8,000 finds from over 150 shipwrecks. Marvel at the only intact barrel of coins ever recovered from a wreck along with ingots of copper, or a ship surgeon’s medicine bottle set. Look deeper and you will see the story of people who sailed with those objects on the high seas.

A new exhibit features images from many famous Hollywood films and popular TV series which have been filmed at Charlestown. These images can be viewed in the fascinating photographic gallery Charlestown on Film.

Tempting treasures can be purchased from the Shipwreck Treasure Museum gift shop, Cornish Moonshine shop or Joules and a variety of food and beverage options are available with the onsite Rebellion Roast House restaurant or On the Deck catering.
