From 1st September 2021

Our new exhibition is about the Scarborough built ship, ‘Morning Star’ that was attacked by pirates off St Helena in 1828. The ship was carrying a secret hoard of gold for the British government and also had women aboard.  Benito De Soto, the pirate’s leader was hunted down and eventually faced a trial but weak evidence hampered the case. Find out more at this facinating free exhibition.
We also have a display of medals, bells and photographs of Scarborough's much loved but sadly departed Town Crier, Alan Booth MBE.
Our normal opening times are: Wednesday to Sunday 11am to 4pm, entrance is free.
