The Sir Max Aitken Museum is a little gem of a place in the centre of town. It is not to be missed when visiting Cowes. We hired the venue for a celebration event and it made the most splendid setting for our dinner party. The staff were very helpful and made sure that the terrace was available for pre dinner drinks ahead of the sit down meal. Kate and her team at Angel in the Kitchen provided exceptional catering - beautiful food in beautiful surroundings, beautifully served. We had a wonderful time at The Sir Max Aitken Museum!

This is a wonderful little museum full of the most fascinating and eclectic collection of exhibits. Naturally most of a nautical nature and every exhibit has an interesting story behind it. Sir Max Aitken was a genuine hero and was obviously and quite rightly admired by many. This museum is a real tribute to the man and his achievements, wonderfully curated. Entry is free which is a real bonus.

We found this as something to do due to the rain with my cousin and their two young children. It was amazing, the ladies in the museum made it even better with their knowledge pointing out items and explaining to us. Would highly recommend. Took about an hour of the day
