Not the biggest art gallery. Most of it was a tribute to captain pugwash. Few excellent examples of automaton and some oils with a nautical theme. Glad it was free so shouldn't complain really!

I always call in here when in Falmouth. There's always something interesting to see, very well presented despite no doubt having budgets resembling fresh air. This time it was an exhibition of Captain Pugwash art - really good fun and so nostalgic for the TV series. Well done Falmouth Art Gallery, another winner!

We visited during August school holidays and loved the Captain Pugwash exhibition. Our kids loved the free summer activities taking place in the gallery.

Always interesting exhibitions. Today dropped into find an exhibition of original Captain Pugwash illustrations, and then around into the next space to find a Grayson Perry tapestry. Unexpected and marvellous.

Great exhibition of "captain pug wash" illustrations. They also have one of Grason Perry's amazing tapestries, an absolute must see.

Lovely workshops welcoming staff. Great art! Easy to park in the quarry car park and short walk down to the gallery, small but interesting gift shop.

A small gallery, but some lovely art on display. On two levels, and spreads into the town hall. Well worth a quick visit.

As some other reviewers have commented, it is a very small gallery but there are many interesting paintings to see. The gallery is attached to the public library with several rooms but there is no entrance fee. As expected, there were quite a lot of maritime paintings and artwork as well as portraits and landscapes. The staff were friendly and... More
