I am bringing a group of children to Whitby in June and would like to visit the new (fairly) science museum in whitby. If anyone has the name or contact number I would be really grateful.

I'd no idea one existed. :shock: The only museum I can think of in Whitby is the lovely old Pannett Park one.

However, I found this one listed in the nearby village of Grosmont, if it's the one you might mean?

Unfortunately I've let him off with worse in the past - farting in bad and laughing, for example - consistency is needed in these cases, otherwise chaos and anarchy rule. And we can't be having that. 8)

So, has anyone been there yet?
Sounds like an interesting place, I´d like to go next time I visit. My mum would love it. ;)

I took a group of special needs' children to Whitby Wizard and they loved it - as did all the adults! Lots of great 'hands on' activities and I think it is especially good for older children 9+; however the younger ones just liked pressing buttons and watching things move! There are a few little pocket money toys for children to buy, a few basic refreshments and a small seating area. It would be a good venue for passing an hour or two on a rainy day.

Well, it sounds really nice. We´ll have to go there, I think. :)
The Whitby Museum is a definite must, but the science museum sounds good, too.
