  • What a little gem this is! You could come out fascinated by half an hour or spend half a day on deeper study. It Was The superb staff that made it for us to be truthful. Beauty was that once you,ve paid to go in (adult was only five pounds and pence and student was three pounds fifty or so - IT LASTS A FULL YEAR!!
  • Lovely warm welcome from staff. Very very interesting house full of images, paintings, maps, following Cooks story and historical facts and brutal untimely death. We thoroughly enjoyed it here.. recommend it. Take your time going round this beautiful house.
  • There was a reenactment going on,where visitors could speak to volunteers dressed in the costume of the time with all the equipment/objects from the time too who were very knowledgeable and entertaining when telling you about voyagers' lives on ships.
  • The whole story of Captain Cook. Follow his life in Whitby and around the world. I didn't know how he died or the sad story of his children but there's a lot to learn here and it's all presented very well indeed.
  • Captain Cook was an extraordinary man and this museum gives you a look at his roots and background and gives you a picture of his life and the story of his voyages.
