'Window Museum'

After years of planning, the Ipswich Maritime Trust's Window Museum on Albion Wharf was officially opened on Sunday, 13 September by Captain Jim Lawrence in the presence of the Mayor of Ipswich. Ipswich Sea Scouts formed an impressive Guard of Honour. The formal opening was followed by a celebration party at the Custom House. This first window (more are planned) will have a succession of themed displays, each one running for about six months. The first display features sail making (based mainly on artefacts donated by Mrs Vera Whitmore) and barges (based on a variety of models and name boards). Currently historic maps of the Wet Dock feature as a backdrop to the display.

Anyone interested in obtaining information about forthcoming events can go to our website. Lectures held at the Royal Harwich Yacht Club are open to everyone.
