About

Scarborough is Britain's first seaside resort and was once a large shipbuilding and fishing port. We are a community run museum and have  been working for over 10 years to help preserve the heritage of Scarborough and its port for future generations.

Our volunteers are happy to host groups and schools to deliver a presentation about Scarborough's amazing maritime history. Our website has thousands of images and stories for you to browse and we have a changing exhibition area with new displays every 3 months.

We have a well stocked archive and library for those doing research.
