COVID temporary closure

We came to Great Ayton today and hoped to do all things Captain Cook. Unfortunately the school room was closed. I couldn’t see anything in the window saying when it would open.

(I’ve left 5 green circles as I don’t want to mark it down but also want to share it’s not open at present)

Delightful small Museum

A very well curated and interesting exhibition depicting Cook’s early life. Perfect for children with some hands-on exhibits and dressing up clothes. We particularly enjoyed the recorded accounts of Cook’s voyages and discoveries.

Interesting and well presented

We were pleased to be able to park right outside the little museum, and to find that it was free, though obviously it is nice to make a donation. You go in to the shop, staffed by a volunteer, who explains what there is to see. Upstairs is an interconnected set of displays, one about the village and Captain Cook's education and life, another with models showing what his school days might have been like, and finally a room devoted to his voyages and inventions to assist navigation. The shop has books about Capt Cook, an assortment of cards and children's gifts. Sadly all his six children died young, and his poor wife was a widow for 41 years. Captain Cook came to a sticky end at the hands of some unfriendly natives, which seemed very sad, considering his wonderful achievements. It made me think how little I have achieved in a longer life, compared with him.

This small museum is full of amazing detail on Capt Cook’s life! The gift shop was also full of many interesting gifts to buy.

Small but packed with fascinating detail

I'm not sure that young James Cook actually attended this village school; by the time he came to live in the village he may have already begun to earn a living. However, it;s a fascinating snapshot of an 18th century village school and it has lots of memorabilia connected with Capt James Cook and his journeys around the world. The museum is on two floors and there is no lift.

Across the village in the old churchyard is a Cook family grave and there is a life-size statue of James as a young boy in the High Green opposite the shops.

If you are on the 'James Cook' tourist trail, don't miss it!

Celebrating the great man
des. 2018 • Par
You can’t fail to be impressed by the humble beginnings of one of Britain’s greatest adventurers and explorers. Son of a labourer and schooled in the lovely little town in Great Ayton, he is one of my heroes. The school house is modest and quaint so don’t expect anything sensational, but it’s worth visiting for its historical relevance. Recommend

Captain Cook's early years
okt. 2018 • Par
We visited this small museum years ago and decided to visit again to see what has happened in the meantime. The Heritage Lottery money they received has been well spent on using more up-to-date museum interpretation methods.

Cook had his schooling here and did really well for a country boy! Local lad makes good!

All the exhibits are upstairs so if stairs are a problem best to give it a miss. it's free but donations are appreciated. Our volunteer was friendly and very helpful.

Great Ayton is a pretty village and well worth a visit along with this museum.

We were staying in Great Ayton to visit friends. The museum was near our hotel so we just happened to stop in. The gentleman that worked there was so very informative and interesting. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit there and our chat with him.
