Cutty Sark sails ahead

In Museum [Insider], new content on January 23, 2010 at 1:28 pm

There’s a new piece on Museum [Insider] about the ongoing conservation project at the Cutty Sark in Greenwich.  The ship was already closed for major conservation work when it was ravaged by a fire in 2007. Fortunately, the majority of the wooden mateirals were off site in a conservation lab at the time, so they weren’t damaged. After reinforcing the iron hull and reintroducing the boards and planks – and a major overhaul of many other aspects of the ship – it will re-open to visitors sometime in 2011.

We all look forward to a trip down to Greenwich to investigate.
