It was pouring with rain and there is nowhere to sit undercover in Whitby! Searching for shelter we saw this delightful old converted church with its free museum. Perfect. The museum is interesting and the lady on the counter nice to speak to. There is a lovely cafe with plenty of comfy seating and very clean toilets. A good choice for coffee and cake. Well recommended.

We popped in here becausr it was free and it was raining. We were glad we did. It doesn't take very long, half an hour at the absolute maximum if you dawdle but the collection is interesting and the building has been beautifully restored. The young girl acting as both museum guide and shop assistant was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Very informative, with beautiful specimens. The (fairly young) restaurant staff have a passion for keeping the history of Whitby alive and know a lot of interesting facts, including those about the jet fossils of 180 million years old, in the restaurant display cases. The tomato soup in the restaurant is amazing, as well!

This is a very small museum but it is free (donations welcome) and very interesting. Lots of information about jet and especially jewelry over the years. Well worth half an hour.
