Lovely little museum
Jan 2020 • Family
There's a small charge of £1 for adults or £2.50 for a family but it's worth this charge as it's a lovely space. There's interesting information and interactive displays for children. The staff fed the creatures in the tank and talked us through what the creatures such as crabs, prawns and fish would do. It was fascinating to watch and to hear from the staff who obviously are passionate about what they do.

A lovely lady helped us spot and identify the marine life in the mesmerising tank. The exhibits around the perimeter were very interesting and the information was very clear and easy to digest.

An interesting insight into how fossils are made, different sorts and where to find them. Plus other interesting facts! Some hands on interaction for children too. There was also a craft fair on when we were there.

This is a small National trust run mini-museum that adds interest to your visit to Robin Hood's Bay as it tells you more about the history and sea-life. It's very small so doesn't take long and well worth popping in if you're in the village.

Nice pretty building

We passed this coatsguard station on our Cleveland Way trip - and it was really good to find out about Ravenscar - the village that never was - and then experience it in what was left of the town itself.

Just one of a number of aged endearing historic offerings along our route and the walk.

We love the telephones in the Coastguard station that tell of the history behind the smugglers, the falling cliffs etc. Well worth a visit if you want to learn all about the coastline of Robin Hood's

It is free to visit the coastguard station and they have various objects on display that you can handle. We asked one of the ladies how you could distinguish Whitby Jet from Coal on the beach and she was extremely helpful and showed us what to do. Thank you.

Lobster pot display captivating

A pretty standard National Trust shop with an interactive display area and friendly staff. The highlight was the living lobster pot display and interpretation - fascinating for all.
