  • Lovely visit here, really interesting and met a volunteer who imparted 1st class information. Highly recommended attraction.
  • A very interesting museum, set over 3 floors. The top floor exhibition changes periodically. A well kept secret in Whitby, well worth a visit.
  • Really enjoyed my visit here. Fascinating insight into the life of Cook and his voyages. Well worth a visit.
  • An unsuspecting museum off the beaten track of Whitby's usual tourist area. There are so many artefacts, works of art, models and insights into Cook and his family's life. When we visited a local school was having a "takeover day", so there were children running guided tours and working in the shop etc - even better, it was free! Definitely worth a visit if you're interested in the history of Cook and the area.
  • Brilliant and evocative. Much original correspondence and puts Cook's life and voyages in context. Worth visiting just to see the amazing detail at full scale of Parkinson's botanical illustrations. Hadn't realised how cooperative the Russians were and how French and Americans, at war with us, treated him as a peaceful scientist.
