To enable us to carry out essential maintenance work the Museum will close at 4.30pm on Sunday 15 December and re-open at 9.30am on Saturday 1st February. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Whitby Museum is open 9:30 am to 4:30 pm throughout the year except for Mondays and a  break between Christmas and the New Year.  The Library and Archive is open for more limited hours than the Museum and is closed throughout January.

Research Appointments

Persons wishing to closely inspect or research any particular collection should make an appointment in advance with the keeper or librarian.

As with all museums all displays are subject to change. If anyone is keen to view particular items they are advised to confirm with the keeper or librarian that the items are on display and will remain on display when they intend to visit. If the items are not on display then it will be necessary to make an appointment to view said items.

Please note that dogs (except for support dogs) are not allowed in the museum or the art gallery.
