    This museum marks the site of Captain Cook's birthplace in Marton which is on the outskirts of Middleborough. The museum is in a lovely landscaped Stewart Park.
    It gives a good idea of Cook's life from the boyhood and his early days in Great Ayton, Staithes and Whitby, to manhood and his three great voyages.

    The house is a National Trust Property.
    It was a family home and here you can see how the Pennyman's lived in the hall over the last three centuries.
    You can find out more about the 'Wicked Sir James Pennyman' and how he gambled away the family fortune which bankrupted the estate in the 18th century.
    There are 6 acres of gardens - with tours around them each month.
