Captain Cook Birthplace Museum

James Cook was born on 27 October 1728 at Marton, just to the south of present-day Middlesbrough. The interactive Captain Cook Birthplace Musuem here, set in the picturesque landscaped grounds of Stewart Park, celebrates his life and achievements.

One of the greatest explorers the world has ever known, Cook became the first European to discover New Zealand and claimed what eventually became Australia for the British crown.

The museum traces his childhood in Marton, Great Ayton and Staithes and his eventual apprenticeship to a shipping company in nearby Whitby, before joining the Royal Navy in 1755.
