Housed in the old Methodist Chapel the Staithes Heritage Centre and Captain Cook Museum fills both floors of the large building on the right of the photograph above.
The ground floor houses extensive displays of lives of the past residents of Staithes with particular reference to the Fishing Industry. Whilst the upper floor is crammed with literally hundreds, if not thousands, of exhibits from the life and voyages of Captain James Cook.
Now under new charitable management, the Museum is open daily
from 11am to 4pm with free admission. There is a new artisan
gift-shop crammed with locally made gifts and produce.
