Member Monday – The True Story of Ropes the Cat

December 11, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Have you met Mr. Ropes? Or have you heard about Penobscot Marine Museum’s cat puppet ambassador? He visits local libraries and classrooms to share our maritime history with our youngest audiences. Mr. Ropes is inspired by a sketch in an 1892 journal kept on board the Searsport-built MABEL I. MEYERS. Mr. Ropes started his life at PMM during pandemic programming and his work has grown over the years. In this Member Monday, hear the true history of Ropes the cat and discover how Mr. Ropes shares these stories. Plus, enjoy a reading of the new comic book, “The Adventures of Mr. Ropes,” written and illustrated by Penobscot Marine Museum’s Intern/Education Assistant, Veronica Maresh Mead.

Member Mondays are included as a member benefit and feature intimate monthly Zoom lunchtime programs presented by staff members. Topics vary every month – it’s a fun way to take a close look at items in our collections and get a peek behind the scenes at PMM. Not a member? Join here.
