The Rotunda Museum
The Rotunda Museum is unique. It is one of the oldest purpose built museums in the United Kingdom and the only one whose architectural design encompassed a new science – the science of geology.
When William Smith, ‘The Father of English Geology’ unravelled the mystery of rock formation the facts he established provided the basis for mineral and oil exploration and are still wholly relevant today.
Scarborough Art Gallery

The Gallery is known and respected for its adventurous and varied programme of temporary exhibitions and for the range of events, talks and activities it presents for all age groups.
Scarborough Museums Trust may still be in its infancy but it has already won major sponsorships and has worked in mutually beneficial partnerships with local, regional, national and international companies.
