HMS are planning an event at the museum to take place on the weekend of 21st/22nd July 2018.
We were contacted by museum education officer, Jenny Phillips, who has invited us along to put on our living history displays at the newly refurbished museum - which looks fantastic.
We are very pleased to be asked to support this museum.
Please visit the website and support their new venture with an actual visit, from Easter 2018.
"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, temporary exhibitions, associated activities and events and a lively education programme.
There is full disabled access throughout and additional facilities such as the Mess Deck(education & activities, meetings & events), Walkabout Gallery (education), Cabinet of Curiosities (archive & research), gift/book shop, and a café.
Since opening it has undergone a series of refurbishments and has won a number of major awards for its displays and services to visitors"
