It really was not for us, they have you 15 minutes per floor but you really only needed 5. It does not take 15 minutes to look around two rooms on a floor. It’s just a lot of letters and old furniture that has no relevance (captain cooks wife’s chair I think) people with kids and younger people should avoid as it’s not for them!

Quite an incite to an amazing man. Plenty of memorabilia and information about those who helped James become the man he was.

It is very well laid out and very informative. They have put very good social distancing measures in. It gives all the history and plenty of information to keep you interested in. It’s interesting how they have set up some rooms to how it would have been when Cook lived there. I definitely recommend it.

This museum has reconfigured itself imaginatively to manage to be open and meet COVID restrictions. General exhibition is good and interesting and Joseph Banks temporary exhibition also of interest, although only covers a specific subset of his achievements.

Interesting up to point, you have to well into maritime history to enjoy. See where Cook stayed when doing his apprenticeship and maps of his trips are best things there. Museum has lots of books about his trips and life for further reading.
