This spring half term dive into The Rock Pool Project's mobile rock pool and discover the curious creatures found on our Cornish coast, create paper plate rock pools in Make & Take and join the Museum trail to help us find all the hidden rock pool creatures.

Rock Pool Explorers

What curious creatures will you find with The Rock Pool Project in their mobile rock pool? Each day there will be a chance to learn and uncover more about the sea life in our Cornish waters, including the best ways to explore rock pools and identify the creatures you discover. The mobile rock pool will be manned by the team from The Rock Pool Project – drop in anytime to see them.

Plus, between 11 am – 3 pm, help create a beautiful artwork installation by covering a shipwreck in colourful coral.
