If you are around Stewarts Park then worth dropping in here for half an hour - especially if you have been to Australasia like I have on a number of occasions. Worth a visit especially like when I visited, the weather went from nice to nasty.

we are lucky to live a few minuets away, there is a centre granite memorial to captain cook standing on where his home and birthplace is. The MUESEUM is only a Minuit away and is well worth a look for a small fee.. Every year too they usually change the peices too and have work shops for the younger children... More

Beautiful museum set in a wonderful park, very interesting and well worth a visit. Great staff made us very welcome, the museum tells the story of captain Cook in a very clear and interesting fashion.

Tucked away in a nice park, short (if very slowly – less than 15 minutes) walk from the car park. Modern building divided into sections telling stories of different stages of Captain Cook’s life. Upstairs café, toilets. Parking is free.

A great Museum dedicated to this locally born Explorer. Well worth a visit if you are in the area and it would be such a shame if the Council allowed it to close due to funding cuts

It's a good few years since I have been here (mainly because it's not open on Monday and for only 6 months of the year), but having now visited again it has had a wonderful, modern transformation. The displays are modern and interactive, and the layout has been brilliantly designed to bring it up to date. Well worth a visit,... More

Nice annual family ticket price. Lots of interactive themes as you go through the museum rooms all about Cook and his voyages. Some dummies, some videos. My kids loved the themed rooms of where Cook visited. Today they had a story teller on and she was excellent , my boys loved her. The kids could go around at their own... More
