Special events & exhibitions
Hild – St Hilda of Whitby
This exhibition takes the visitor through what we know of Hilda’s life, from birth to death. She lived in Northumbria in the 7th century AD and our information about her comes almost all from the Venerable Bede. The exhibition is illustrated with photographs of stained glass windows, mostly local, and with specially-commissioned artworks, and also contains objects uncovered in the archaeological investigations at Whitby in the 1920s.
From Fancy Shoes to Fisherman’s Boots – 200 years of Whitby Footwear
This exhibition is in the costume gallery until the end of 2017. If anyone has any footwear of interest please contact the volunteers in the costume gallery.
