Falmouth Art Gallery has gained nationwide recognition for its innovative education programme. It has been nominated for or won 19 major awards.
‘This gallery reaches out to places other galleries simply don't reach, from disaffected youths to the very young. It was astonishing to see even babies are encouraged to come in and enjoy the art, as well as create it themselves. Every visitor of any age received a friendly welcome.'
Museums Awards for Excellence:
