history National Maritime Museum
The National Maritime Museum (NMM) forms part of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site and is one of the largest Maritime Museums in the world. It was opened in 1934 in the former Royal Naval School in Greenwich Park, London. The Museum receives sponsorship from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and has been a source of controversy over the years due to the fact that it contains certain war trophies taken from Germany after the Second World War.
The National Maritime Museum Cornwall is a fully independent museum, a development of the original FIMI (Falmouth International Maritime Initiative) partnership created in 1992 and the result of collaboration between the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich and the former Cornwall Maritime Museum in Falmouth.
