Whitby Museum, Whitby
Categories: Specialty Museums, Museums
Snake stones, a hangman’s locket, and an authentic hand of glory are just a few of arcane items at Whitby Museum. With a taste for the decidedly obscure, the museum’s collection also includes leeches, a ship’s figurehead, and fine examples of jet jewelry, made popular as mourning jewelry by Queen Victoria. If you have children, stop by the museum office first to request a “treasure map,” which guides the young ones to additional rarities both inside and outside along the museum’s park trail. An on-site cafe features homemade pastries. Put Whitby Museum at the forefront of your travel plans using our Whitby vacation route planner.
