A musical evening on Hancock Wharf with Castlebay!

 

Our sixth annual summer concert series on the Hancock Wharf continues with Castlebay.

The Bulman Bed Hangings

The Bulman Bed Hangings at Museums of Old York, Maine

The Bulman Bed hangings are the crown jewel of our collection, and are widely considered a national treasure. The Museum has recently received a grant from the Coby Foundation to have the bed hangings professionally stabilized and conserved in preparation for installation in the Remick Gallery.

We will be telling the fascinating history of the bed hangings through a series of posts on our blog, introducing readers to the talented team of experts involved in the project, as well as documenting the conservation and reinstallation process, and sharing new findings. Please join us on this incredible journey by reading our first post and signing up to follow the blog.
