Business Description
In Cowes High Street, the famous pink building ‘The Prospect’ is home to the Sir Max Aitken Museum. The beautiful 18th century sail maker’s loft, where Britannia’s mainsail was made, was acquired and restored by Sir Max Aitken in 1947. Today, with its traditional splendour, the building boasts Sir Max Aitken’s personal collection of nautical artifacts including a remarkable display of marine paintings, nautical instruments and yachting memorabilia. Whether you’re fascinated by maritime history or just enjoy unique exhibits, the Museum is well worth a visit.
