This Captain Cook themed walk will start at 10am from Marton Library, heading to Stewart Park. At 10:30am we will be treated to a guided visit of the newly refurbished Captain Cook Birthplace Museum. Here there will be an opportunity to learn more about James Cook's time in Marton. We will discover more about his amazing achievements and of course find out more about the new spaces that have been opened in the museum this season, including the new temporary exhibition gallery where you will find the "Gotta Catch 'Em All" exhibition. 

For those who wish to do so afterwards, they can buy coffee or tea in the new Cook's cafe upstairs.

Donations welcome: suggested donation £4 or £2.50 concession to match the Musuem entry cost.

The Captain Cook Birthplace Museum

Discover why Captain James Cook is the world's most famous navigator with our exploration into his early life, seafaring career and the legacy of his voyages.

The Captain Cook Birthplace Museum opened on the 28th October 1978 - the 250th anniversary of Cook's birth. It is housed in a purpose-built building close to the granite urn marking the site of Cook's birthplace cottage in Stewart Park, Marton, Middlesbrough.

The museum tells the story of one of the world's greatest navigators and mariners through themed display galleries housing original artefacts, 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 & activities), the Endeavour Room (meetings & events), the Resolution Resources Room (archive & research) complete with a gift/book shop and café.
