Captain Cook Memorial Museum (Whitby, United Kingdom)

The Captain Cook Memorial Museum in Whitby, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom, celebrates the achievements of Cook and his crews, and the scientists and artists that sailed with him. James Cook, recognized as the last of the great maritime explorers, was the first to discover to the world the east coast of Australia, and the first to circumnavigate and chart New Zealand. He was the first to sail round the world in both directions, the first to cross the Antarctic Circle and to cross both Circles too; and the first to discover the Hawaiian islands. His sea-going career started in Whitby, Yorkshire, at the house in Grape Lane owned by Captain John Walker to whom the young Cook was apprenticed. The 17th century house on the harbourside is now the Captain Cook Memorial Museum. The museum is home to collections of original paintings, drawings and manuscripts, maps, ship models and Pacific artifacts. In 2013 the Museum won Visit England’s national gold award for excellence. For details of opening times and admission prices, please see the official website. The Museum, in the centre of Whitby, is open daily from mid February through October, and in the winter months by special arrangement with the manager.
