SORRY BUT DUE TO THE UK LOCKDOWN WE ARE CLOSED UNTIL 17th MAY 2021
We will reopen with a new exhibition commemorating the 120th anniversary of the end of Queen Victoria’s reign in 1901. We look back at the huge growth Scarborough underwent during her reign whilst acknowledging the poverty and social upheaval that accompanied it. We will look at the growth of the town, new schools, churches and major buildings. We look at the fishing industry, the visitor attractions, the growth of manufacturing and mass marketing, poverty and childhood mortality.
Scarborough’s Town Crier will open the exhibition as we also have a small display that includes Alan Booth’s MBE and bells (a previous town crier).
Normal hours are: Wednesday to Sunday 11am to 4pm, entrance free
Please follow Coronavirus guidelines and do not visit us if you have any symptoms.
Only 2 unrelated people or 1 family / group of less than 6 are allowed at a time.
Please wear a mask and use the hand sanitiser provided on entry & exit.
If we are closed you can see our 'History Box' opposite the harbour. The disused red BT phone box is open 24 hours a day 365 days a year and has pictures and an audio guide to the history of Scarborough. click here for details.
