Record numbers passionate about a Kiss

Published30th April 2019

More than a thousand people flocked to Ipswich’s Christchurch Mansion over the weekend to see Rodin’s iconic The Kiss – boosting the total number of visitors to more than 33,400.

This has propelled Kiss & Tell: Rodin and Suffolk to become the most successful exhibition ever held in Ipswich, with an average of 5,500 visitors every month.

Museums Manager James Steward said: “We are delighted with the late surge in April which has seen visitor numbers rocket even higher –300% more people have come through the doors than at the same time last year.

“We want to continue to attract people of all ages, all backgrounds and from a wide area to our magnificent museums. Once again, I want to thank the Tate for their generosity in lending us this iconic sculpture.”

Across town at the Ipswich Art Gallery High Street, you still have until Sunday (5th May) to see the Women 100 exhibition.
