Captain Cook Memorial Museum : Michelin's recommendations

This late 17C house, where James Cook worked as an apprentice for the shipowner John Walker, is now a museum devoted to him. The rooms are furnished in the 18C style and, during your visit, you will see letters, documents and various objects about the life of this great explorer and his expeditions. The visit ends in the attic, where the young apprentice seaman quartered when he was on land (special exhibition).
