Captain Cook Memorial Museum

View the days out leaflet for Captain Cook Memorial Museum

The Museum is in the ship-owner's house in Grape Lane, Whitby where the young James Cook lodged as apprentice seaman.   Rich authentic collections - original paintings and drawings, maps, ship models, and Pacific artefacts - many original letters and documents - tell the story of Cook, his crews and the artists and scientists who sailed with him. 

Special Exhibition for 2014

Australian Encounters! Charting a Continent Cook and his successors completed the chart of the ncontinent's coastline and marvelled at the strange new ncreatures they saw - ‘unlike anything encountered before!’ He and his crew navigated in unknown treacherous waters, nwhere the ship was holed on a coral reef, and then had to be beached and repaired. The voyage however led to the choice of Botany Bay as the site of a new colony, starting a trail of immense change throughout Australasia. This year marks the bicentenary of the publication of the entire coastline, completed by Matthew Flinders in 1814.
