Our Next Exhibition

'1914' - An exhibition running from 1st July 2014 until Christmas 2014.

The exhibition includes the Bombardment of Whitby. There will also be sections on the loss of 'HMS Hogue', 'HMHS Rohilla', and the enthusiasm with which the town answered Kitchener's call to enlist.
The exhibition draws heavily on the Whitby Gazette's reporting at the time and will include many items lent by Whitby people today.

Annual activities

Einstein's birthday
Every year in March (12th, 13th & 14th in 2014, the subject being About the Future) we run 2-3 days of hands-on science experiments for very young primary schoolchildren from local schools in the Normanby Room. This is to celebrate Einstein's birthday (he was born on 14th March 1879). This is usually a highly successful event enjoyed not only by the children but also by those running it.

 

Pannett Art Gallery Exhibitions

The Pannett Art Gallery is run by Whitby Town Council (not the Whitby Literary & Philosophical Society). However because of its proximity to the Museum and interest to Museum visitors the exhibition programme for 2014 is given below. Admission is free. Information courtesy of Ms. Helen Berry, Curator.
