Details

The Rotunda Museum is currently closed to the public. Scarborough Museums Trust are working on opening the museum so that it adheres to social distancing and public safety in regards to Covid-19.

Opened in 1829, the Rotunda Museum is one of the world’s first purpose-built museums and was built to a design suggested by William ‘Strata’ Smith, known as the father of English Geology. The interior, with its fascinating Georgian gallery, features a frieze showing the geology of the local coastline designed by Smith’s nephew, John Phillips. The original cases tell the history of the museum and they explore the stories of the nineteenth century Scarborough Philosophical Society which brought the collections together.

Come face to face with the wonderful creatures which once called Yorkshire home at the Ancient Seas of the Yorkshire Coast display. See the fascinating collection of fossils and specially commissioned reconstructions of what marine life was like millions of years ago.

Please note: The Gristhorpe Man and Star Carr exhibits are not currently on display.
