Visit the house where the James Cook came to serve his seaman's apprenticeship. The handsome 17th century house on the harbour belonged to Cook's master, the Quaker shipowner, John Walker. It was here in the attic that the family lodged thier apprentices when not at sea serving the London coal trade.The Museum's rich collection celebrates Cook's achievements and the work of those who sailed with him - sailors, scientists and artists.See letters in Cook's own hand, original paintings and drawings, ship models and maps, and strange objects from newly discovered lands.Special Exhibition for 2014 - 'Australian Encounters! Charting a Continent'. Cook and his successors completed the chart of the continentss coastline and marvelled at the strange new creatures they saw - 'unlike anything encountered before!'. « less
