Cook Museum Whitby

Events and Activities

Looking forward to the holidays!

We have had a busy season with lots of exciting events.  Highlights included the batik workshop, which was so popular it had to be repeated, and John McAleer's fascinating talk on the strange afterlives of Captain Cook.  

There's was lots happening over the summer holidays, and then the ever popular visit of our old friends from the Historical Maritime Society, pictured above.  Our last event of the season was a tremendously popular lantern making workshop during half-term.

We are busy planning next year with lots of new and interesting things to do.

We reopen on Friday 10th February, 1100 - 1500

And don't forget, you can make a visit during the closed season.  Ring the Operations Manager for a special appointment on 01947 601900.
