I live in Hartlepool and as a change decided to check out both the park and the museum. The museum doesn't have lots to offer. It it certainly gives you an insight into the life of captain cook. There is a dressing up area that you can try of some items. There is a tour and a few interesting boards... More

Captain Cook Museum is full of sound and interesting facts about a local hero. Once you have visited the Museum, Stewarts Park is ideal for a pleasant walk, with or without your dog. There is a childrens' play area, some animals, a lake and beautiful trees. There is also a café and I believe Craft Fairs are sometimes held here.... More

This place is nice for what it is. There are alot of videos which tell the tale of james cook and i learned alot but there isnt as many artifacts as i expected in a birth place museum. I enjoyed my trip and like the fact i can go back with my ticket.

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
