I loved this little museum, fossils, model ships and a room packed full of treasures found in the area. If you are in Whitby, definatly worth a look.

I've been to Whitby three times and I always visit the Museum. It is amazing. It has everything from fossils to doll houses to jet chessboards and samplers plus the Hand of Glory ....

We stumbled across the museum by accident. Initially we thought that the £5 admission was quite expensive. We were totally wrong! The museum is packed full of local facts and artifacts. The jet exhibit is fascinating. Thoroughly worth a visit. The surrounding park is lovely...More

Thank you for your enquiry. I'm afraid only support dogs are allowed in the museum & surrounding Pannett Park.
