Located on board several converted barges moored to the west of Albert Bridge, on the south shore of the Thames, is the Couper Collection - Europe\'s first permanent floating museum of art and events dedicated to the work of Max Couper. Deep within these converted barges lies a secret world of fictional charts, sculptures and artefacts that take inspiration from the Thames.
