The James Cook Museum is never going to challenge for the title of the best Museum in the world. It has a limited collection and seems to struggle with its purpose in life. However, it's a great experience. The building itself is a fascinating thing and to stroll around thinkign of the history of the building alone is worth the stop. The collections are interesting enough with an abvious focus on local history. Cooks anchor and cannon are a delight for history buffs. Don't expect the Louvre, but you will be engaged with this place fo a few hours.
