Cowes Maritime Museum
This small museum situated in Cowes library began in the 1970’s when library staff began collecting plans, photographs and models from the ship building firm J. Samuel Whites. The collection now incorporates all aspects of local maritime activity from shipbuilding to sailing. The museum displays a selection of objects and images which help to tell the story of Cowes and its important maritime heritage.

Complementing the museum collection is the Library Services’ Maritime Collection, consisting of books, journals, press cuttings etc. on the local maritime industries and all aspects of yachting. The Collection is housed on the gallery in the library.
