A great museum that is a lot bigger than you think, it's informative and has lots of exhibits and displays as well as a old life boat to look at. It also has a great gift shop. Well worth a visit!

Lots of interesting information about the lifeboats in the Whitby area and how the lifeboats were developed. Its always interesting looking around at all the rescues and achievements of the lifeboat service.
