Captain Cook Museum

This modest looking building was for a time the home of Captain Cook. He lived here for about seven years from the age of 17 as an indentured apprentice learning his trade as a sailor.

The museum contains lots of interesting documents and paintings related to his time in Whitby. There is also an impressive collection of model ships including one of the Endeavour in which Cook first circumnavigated the world.


  1. Nice picture, I love your blog!
    Keep up the good work!

  2. I've been there too. Interesting place, especialyy for an Aussie! ;-)

  3. By an amazing coincidence in Darwin at this very moment a replica of the Endeavour is docked. It's incredible to look at it and think about the epic scale of his travels to this side of the world. An incrdeible Captain.
