'A museum within a museum'
The Whitby Literary & Philosophical Society runs
- Whitby Museum
- Monthly lectures
The Society was established in 1823 and has around 800 members. It is one of the very few remaining Literary & Philosophical Societies that still runs an independent Museum, the older parts of which are often regarded as a 'Museum within a Museum' and have the atmosphere of an Edwardian Museum.
The extension, opened in 2005, offers a costume gallery, temporary exhibition, lecture (Normanby) room and tearoom facilities.
