  • Great museum in the house of captain james cook. Good exhibits. Wheel chair accessible entrance. Lift available to first floor.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the history of Cook told through reproductions, paintings, models and other memorabilia. About 1.5 hours to get around everything. Note: lots of stairs in the period building.
  • if interested in cooks life and adventures its a must see if not you might be disappointed

  • Great museum. Lots of fascinating maps and drawings
