Captain Cook Memorial Museum
Captain Cook Memorial Museum

The Museum is in the seventeenth-century house on the harbourside which belonged to the Quaker master-mariner, Captain John Walker, to whom the young Cook was apprenticed. The small collection of oil paintings relate to Captain Cook, to those who sailed with him, and patrons of his voyages of discovery. They are complemented by a wider collection of original watercolours, prints and drawings created on, or shortly after, the voyages.
