RNLI Lifeboat Museum Whitby
The Town’s RNLI lifeboat museum, housed in a former Lifeboat Station which was briefly pressed back into use around 2006/2007 while the modern day lifeboat station over on the East side of town was demolished and a brand new Lifeboat station built on the site.
Lifeboats crewed by the people of Whitby have been helping those in trouble at sea since 1802. Thirty-six RNLI Medals for Gallantry have been awarded to crew members through the years.
Housed in a double boathouse that was used by the RNLI from 1895–1957, this museum features models, paintings, medals, photographs, kit and touching mementos from wrecks and famous rescues, including those involving Coxswains Henry Freeman and Tom Langlands.
