The Captain Cook Birthplace Museum closes for its winter break on Sunday, October 30. It will reopen on Tuesday, April 11 2017, after refurbishment thanks to a government grant.

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.
