Plan Your Visit


Visiting museums helps to influence learning and open doors to the imagination.  Wherever we go, we are following in the footsteps of others who once lived in our cities, towns, villages and houses.  Follow in the footsteps of the young James Cook and discover a world of knowledge, enjoyment and inspiration!
