What's On

Our current exhibition is about

Vice-Admiral Sir John Lawson

 

A brand new book has just been published entitled ‘Lawson Lies Still in The Thames’ by Gill Blanchard.   Our exhibition and the book recounts the story of Vice-Admiral Sir John Lawson. He was born in Scarborough in 1615 and went on to be an important historical figure when he blockaded the Thames with ships.  

Scarborough historian, Dr. Jack Binns, said that Lawson was a hero of his time coming from humble origins. No others rose so high in the land or played such a decisive and courageous role in history.
Sadly there is no blue plaque to remember this important man by but hopefully with the publication of this new book we hope to place him firmly back in the spotlight.

Alongside the exhibition we have all our previous exhibitions in browser files and a well stocked library and archive of local history and maritime books & literature. (See 'our archives' list here: Our Archives)
Our normal opening hours are 11am to 4pm, every Wednesday to Sunday inclusive. Entrance is free. 

We look forward to welcoming you aboard!
