This was one of my favorites as a child and on returning some thirty years later I was not disappointed. The only disappointment was no more shrunken heads and the talking miner bird sadly, gone to feather heaven.

wonderful, rather old-fashioned museum with superb exhibits and lots of interesting corners to delve into. Excellent café too.

The Museum in Pannett Park, housed an outstanding display of curios, and artefacts. The room had displays everywhere. It was hard to know where to look first. Well worth a visit for young, and old.

We entered the museum and have a great time to look at the display. On the first floor was the souvenir shop and I bought a real jute bag with the flag of Britain on it. The museum thou very limited in exhibit give one a good reading of what to see and expect in the place.

I loved this place, you walk in and there's a giant ammonite and then a huge plesiosaur and ichthyosaur on the wall. Turn around and there's stuffed seabirds and carved stones from the roman times. It's themed as far as it can be, but there's such an eclectic mix of fascinating things that there's always something to catch your eye.... More

I've already visited some of the other museums in Whitby but stumbled across this one whilst walking through Pannet Park, and was very glad I did. Plenty of items to see all the way from Dinosaurs up to Toys. Great.

Whitby Museum is probably like no museum you've ever visited. It looks very much like a Victorian Gentleman's collection from a grand tour and is stuffed with a huge amount of items. The museum itself is set in the lovely Pannett Park, which is very nice for a walk around and has an excellent childrens' playground. It's situated a small... More
