This is an ideal introduction to history for children, putting Cook's great exploits in the context of their times. We were researching Captain Cook to get information for our grandson in New Zealand, and the staff could not have been more helpful. A local gem.

Surprisingly interesting, lots of background information giving context, contrast to modern times is huge, we were fortunate to turn up on a free entry day by chance. Worth an hour in a nice park .
