Attraction Information

  • Museums and Art Galleries icon Museums and Art Galleries

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Indoor

The Old Coastguard Station offers hands on models and colourful displays to help you find out what makes this part of the North Yorkshire Coast so special, from its distinctive geology and the impact of the elements, to local wildlife and the secret history of smuggling!
You can have fun making waves, generating wind power and finding out more about the natural processes happening every day at Robin Hoods Bay through visual and interactive educational displays.
Don't worry if you don't have much luck on your own forays into the rock pools, you can also come face to face with fascinating creatures inside too in their rockpool tank, spot shore crabs, hermit crabs, blennies, winkles, sea anemones and prawns – all of whom were discovered in the rockpools just outside the centre!
Regular events are held throughout the year too, including art exhibitions and rockpool safaris and there is cafe on site.
