“A treasure trove.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

You can certainly be forgiven for being overwhelmed by the vast amount of curiosities, nick knacks, art & prehistoric creatures! Well worth a visit on your next excursion to Whitby (whether you've been before or not).

“Treasure trove”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Amazing and diverse collections including fossils, jet jewellery and ornaments, shipping related exhibits, costumes, dolls houses, and the spooky Hand of Glory! A bit traditional in its presentation, but absolutely jam-packed with treasures.

“A must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

I visit this church each time I go to Whitby and I like it better than the Abbey. Very nostalgic of times gone. Very peaceful even with people in it. I love it it. It smells great too!
