After visiting Cooktown in Oz last year I was interested to see the story from this side of the world. The displays and info were great. Definitely a must for a budding world traveller/explorer. Stewart Park which was the location was an added bonus. Great park with lakes, arboretum, animals and a great Cook themed play park for the kids.

My 8 year visited with school and has been asking to visit with us ever since . The £4 admission for the family is valid until September. We invented a game to find all the rats on each of the rooms and the boys loved the dress up and reading area. It's interesting and heartfelt to learn about Middlesbroughs most... More

Despite informing staff when we arrived at 3.46 that we had travelled a long distance to get here, we were told we could not go into the museum as the last admission was 3.45. A whole one minute earlier. We were not bothered that we wouldn't get much time in the museum and were willing to pay to go in... More

Captain Cook's School room is a fascinating place. He was an incredible man, with an amazing life. A man who explored, discovered and was a born adventurer. This museum takes you back to those times. Wonderful place, great information.

Captain Cook is one of the most important people to have a connection with Whitby and the museum is really good and interesting. The building is where Captain Cook lived and served his apprenticeship. The museum is really well organised and has many splendid exhibits. It gives a real flavour of how the world was being explored in the eighteenth... More
