Whitby Museum on BBC1

Don’t miss Whitby Museum featuring on the Antiques Road Trip on Wednesday 17th January BBC1 at 4.30pm.

The programme, filmed last September, shows the expert Margie Cooper shopping in Scarborough before visiting Whitby Museum to learn about William Scoresby Senior’s development of the crows nest, the role of whaling in Georgian Whitby and the importance of whale oil for both lubrication and lighting in early factories.

Why not come along and see some of our whaling exhibits for yourself. Don’t forget to check out the ichthyosaurs too, relations of David Attenborough’s “Sea Dragon”!
