The Mak­ing of a Great Sea­man ex­hi­bi­tion ex­am­ines the unique fea­tures which made Whitby one of the ma­jor ship-build­ing centres in Bri­tain and a key cen­tre for train­ing young men for the sea. The year 2018 marks the 250th an­niver­sary of the start of Cap­tain Cook’s first voy­age to the Pacific in 1768, and the ex­hi­bi­tion also takes a look at what Cook took with him from Whitby across the sea.
