Whitby Museum, Whitby Reviews - Write a Review

  • Amazing amount of items crammed in to the museum. Look out for the hand, and the fantastic display of hand made ships. The staff are friendly and will talk for hours about the contents. It's the sort of place you need to go to more than once to see everthing.

  • Wonderful museum. Crammed full of interesting artifacts, fossils, taxidermy...the list goes on. Something for everyone. Adult admission on 5 pounds, kids free. Fantastic way to spend a couple of hours away from the crowds. Highly recommended.

  • Whitby museum is a great example of a museum that has embraced it's traditional look and feel rather than trying to update with modern decor and interpretation. This results in a museum which is as much worth the visit for the charm of the old display cases as for the objects inside them. There's a lot to see and the £5 admission charge is well worth it in my opinion.

  • Excellent museum. Such a pleasant change to find a proper museum with a great variety of items. We will visit again as there is so much to see. Never change it. It is just what a museum should be. Art gallery is excellent too.

  • Wide range of interesting objects including some wonderful fossils. The park surrounding it has good views and it's a lovely walk up to the museum. The staff are very friendly and helpful too
