  • Lovely to see the old lifeboat as well as the modern lifeboat. Very nice models showing historic events regarding the Whitby lifeboats and crew. Really interesting museum and well worth a visit.
  • Interesting information throughout and shows the evolution of the RNLI and the great risks they undertake daily
  • Very small but packed with interesting displays
  • Really interesting history, and contributes to keeping the lifeboat afloat and saving lives today
  • Very intresting place
