Ship Ahoy 2015

Post by duncanwilson » Tue Feb 24, 2015 3:00 pm

Ship Ahoy 2015 will be held in the Scottish Maritime Museum, Irvine, KA12 8QE on Saturday 11th April. The Museum will be open from 10am until 5pm. Normally there is an admission charge, however Saturday 11th April will be an Open Day, no charges being levied upon those who visit the Museum.
Among the participating organisations will be the Clyde River Steamer Club, West Highland Steamer Club, Paddle Steamer Preservation Society, Coastal Cruising Association, Scottish Maritime Museum and Clyde Built, Friends of Glenlee.
An interesting selection of model ships and picture boards will also be on display.
Unfortunately, unlike previous Ship Ahoys, there will be no bus trips running in association with the exhibition.
The Puffers Café, which is another building adjacent to the Museum, will be providing tea, coffee and hot meals. There will also be a catering outlet in the Museum providing tea and coffee only.
Ample free car parking will be available outside the Museum.
Irvine Railway Station is five minutes’ walk at a brisk pace from the Museum, but is not well signposted.
Exit the station and turn left. Turn left again under the railway bridge. Walk down Montgomery Street and turn left into Linthouse Vennel where you will see the gate into the Museum grounds.
The Museum entrance is in the centre of the building.
Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday 11th April for Ship Ahoy 2015 in the Scottish Maritime Museum, Irvine, 10am – 5pm, admission free.
