Staithes Museum

The museum contains thousands of photos, memorabilia and artefacts devoted to fishing, ironstone mining, alum quarries, lifeboat stories, Captain Cook and his apprenticeship in Staithes and his travels, maritime models and timepieces, natural sciences, our artistic heritage and the railway.

The centre is a focal point for the very rich and important social and family history of this amazing village. It was originally created by Reg Firth and his wife, Anne, in the handsome Grade II listed Methodist Chapel on the High Street.

If you are visiting Staithes, and it’s well worth a visit, you will need to park in the upper village and walk down to the old village. Early in the year and at the back end of the year, parking is free in the council run car park. There is a private car park next to the council car park and you have to pay parking charges all year.
