It is a small museum but well presented on a special topic, the life and times of Captain Cook. The coverage is excellent and provides an insight into Cook's many achievements. His career and discoveries are far more than just his visits down under. The museum is tucked in a large park that is also worth a stroll as well

This is ok to have a visit, but once you have been you tend not to want to go again, some interesting items in there. Good for all ages.

The museum was excellent, well laid out in chronological order with lots of display cases and detailed information on the life and travels of Captain Cook spread across many rooms. The museum is surrounded by a beautiful and vast park which is pleasant to walk around and the café onsite is great for a light lunch.

Bang smack in the middle of a beautiful park, this place shouldn't be missed and I guess it is the most famous place in Marton, a suburb of Middlesbrough.
