The Bounty Museum

The Bounty Launch

Direct from the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, the exhibition Captain Bligh: Myth, Man & Mutiny, featuring a full-size replica of the Bounty Launch, has now found its home at the Bounty Museum.


This exhibition explores the true story of Captain Bligh and provides a compelling counter-narrative to the infamous Hollywood portrayal of the mutiny on HMS Bounty.


Discover the real man behind the myth, and delve into a historical adventure that challenges everything you thought you knew about this notorious event.

The boat is as faithful a reproduction of the original Bounty Launch and was built in-house at the National Maritime Museum in Cornwall. 


This build was led by professional and accomplished boat builder Andrew Nancarrow, supported by trainee Boat Curator Ollie Crediton and Advanced Apprentice in Boat Conservation Reuben Thompson, and a small team of museum volunteers and students from Falmouth Marine School.
