A Selection from the Collection of the Museum of Knots & Sailor’s Ropework on the Ipswich Waterfront

The Ipswich Maritime Trust Window Museum on the Ipswich Waterfront features a selection from the collection of The Museum of Knots & Sailors Ropework. It can be viewed 24/7 for the next 5 months or so. But there is still plenty to see by appointment at the Museum itself itself .
The exhibition at the Ipswich Maritime Window Museum has now finished.

Museum’s international loan

Our Museum has gone international, with a loan of items for a special exhibition in France…

The Museum of Knots and Sailor’s Ropework has loaned 48 items from its collection to the Musée Industriel de la Corderie Vallois à Notre-Dame-de-Bondeville near Rouen in France. The items are on loan for their exhibition L’appel du large (the call of the sea) – sailors’ ropework and sailors’ popular art. The exhibition runs from May 24, 2008 until of January 5, 2009. This water powered ropery is well worth a visit at any time, but this special exhibition is an added bonus.
