  • It really was not for us, they have you 15 minutes per floor but you really only needed 5. It does not take 15 minutes to look around two rooms on a floor. It’s just a lot of letters and old...  more »
  • Quite an incite to an amazing man. Plenty of memorabilia and information about those who helped James become the man he was.  more »

  • Far too academic. Too much written material that would take many days to digest. I expected better representations of his explorations. Cook was an important part of the history of exploration, anthropology and natural history, yet there were no artifacts on show, like the spears and shields he took from Australia (as an example). The woman on reception was perfectly friendly and informative but the strange woman dressed like a Morris dancer who sat there clapping her hands on the first floor did not inspire me.
  • A wonderful gem of a museum. So informative. It is small but everything is beautifully presented. I enjoyed learning about the man and his travels. A wonderful array of artefacts is housed in the museum and the staff are fabulous. Thank you.
