The Ropewalk Museum

Welcome to the Ropewalk Website.

The Ropewalk is a regionally acclaimed centre for the arts housing four gallery spaces, a sculpture garden, coffee shop and facilities for room hire, printmaking and picture framing.

Ropery Hall is small scale venue for film, theatre, comedy and music.

The centre is situated slightly to the east of the Humber Bridge, on the southern bank of the River Humber. Stretching out towards the bank, at almost a quarter of a mile long, The Ropewalk was initially part of a rope making factory; opening in 1767, the factory eventually closed in 1989.



Polar Bear Puppetmaking – Wednesday 17th February


To mark our children’s theatre performance, The Snow Bear, we are hosting three workshops making polar bear puppets. The first, for four to six year olds, takes place between 10am and 11am; the second, held between 12.30pm and 2pm is suitable for seven to 11 year olds while the third, that runs between 2.30pm and 4pm is suitable for those aged over 12 years.
There is no need to accompany your child on these workshops (thanks to our new bank of experienced and trained volunteers) so why don’t you book a workshop in advance and receive a money-off voucher for tea/coffee and cake in our Coffee Shop, redeemable on the day of the workshop?

To book please call The Ropewalk 01652 660380
