Loved whitby museum could have spent hours perusing the place. Loved the fact the art gallery was free. Lovely, helpful staff. Disliked having to leave because baby was hungry and cafe was shut.

This museum is absolutely packed with so many items to see and study. The range of different items on display surprised us, and the 2 hours we allowed for this visit was simply not long enough to do it justice

Was £5 to get in but what looks like a small museum housed so much stuff, the Museum attendant told us 82,000 things..! Was so packed with things got lost a few times.
Best things were the fossilised crocodile and dinosaurs which are meant to be some of the best specimens and the severed hand...! Only minor dislike -everything had signs do not touch, which may be pretty boring for young children who like interactive things. The art gallery before you get to the museum desk is free and that was good too.
