Online fun with the Captain Cook Memorial Museum!

Hope you are all staying safe and well and finding things to do.

We are missing our regular workshops at the Captain Cook Memorial Museum so we have been busy preparing activities for you to enjoy online.

We will be releasing things every week on our Facebook page Captain Cook Memorial Museum. Please like and follow our page to get regular updates and posts.

If you can’t access Facebook, please let me know if you would like to go on a regular email list of these activities

We will also be posting on
