BEMBRIDGE MARITIME MUSEUM AND SHIPWRECK CENTRE 

Expansion and relocation plans are currently under way for Bembridge Maritime Museum, which, sadly may mean it having to move out of the village.

The business has outgrown its present site and needs more space having recently acquired a lot of new material from two other mainland museums that have recently closed down.

It is also hoped new premises will enable the vintage Bembridge Lifeboats the Queen Victoria (1887) and the Langham (1922) to be housed in an added lifeboat museum.

Museum owner Martin Woodward said he is also anxious to dispel rumours that the business is closing down. He said, “I am very sad to be considering moving out of Bembridge after 26 years of the museum being in the village centre but there is now no other option.”

“Apart from the expansion limitations of our present premises another contributing factor is the chronic lack of parking. Visitors won’t stop if they can’t find anywhere to park.”

It is the intention that the museum will be turned back into residential housing but only by converting the present building in a way that will leave the exterior little changed.
