Captain Cook Birthplace Museum

The Captain Cook Birthplace Museum has now closed for the winter season.

The Captain Cook Birthplace Museum is housed in a purpose-built building close to the granite urn marking the site of Cook's birthplace cottage in Stewart Park, Marton.

The museum celebrates the life and achievements of Captain Cook, the world's most famous navigator and tells his story through themed display galleries, temporary exhibitions, associated activities and events and a lively education programme.

There is full disabled access throughout and additional facilities such as the Discovery Room (education and activities), the Endeavour Room (meetings and events), the Resolution Resources Room (archive and research), gift/book shop, and a café.
