Museum of Island History


A skillet - The Island’s Earliest Christian Object


The Museum of Island History closes on 31st March 2015 due to reductions in funding.

We will continue to care for the objects we hold. We are working to make our collections accessible through partnerships with other organisations and the internet, enhancing our archaeological displays at Newport Roman Villa in time for the 2016 season.

Newport Roman Villa, Cowes Maritime Museum and Dinosaur Isle will maintain their existing hours of opening in 2015.

For any enquiries about our collections please contact Corina Westwood 01983 823433 or Richard Smout 01983 823821
