Didn't realise whitby even had a park, never mind a museum in it! Wow, what a great find!
The museum is crammed full with exhibits and info and really is very interesting.
The art gallery is superb too!
At 2.50 each (Student discount) it was an excellent hour out and we would definitely return.

Thank James K

We had visited Whitby a couple of times but had not decided to go to the museum before. This is mainly because there is plenty to do in an around Whitby and we had never really given it a thought. However this visit we walked up to the Museum which is a short walk up away from the waterfront.

Inside there is huge number of varied exhibits, the place is full of different items relating to the local area, including more recent shipping and fishing times and much more prehistoric, with examples of fossils and the like. The museum is really interesting and like no other museum we have been to.
