The museum staff are excited to welcome our new exhibit as seen in this week's Observer. Bob Arrowsmith has spent three months making this detailed model of the Cyril and Lillan Bishop in a bottle complete with soldiers being rescued. Bob told us how he made the model using his own handmade tools. The model can be seen now in our boat making section in the extension. Please come and marvel at the intricate detail. Bob has also donated his handmade tools to the museum and these will shortly also be on display.
We are very proud to announce the Fishermen's Museum has been awarded Accreditation. This means we meet the standards expected for the services we provide and the care of our collection.
