The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
This unique museum is over 180 years old, and was first built to display the ideas of William Smith, the father of English Geology.
Smith suggested the circular design to illustrate the then new science of geology. The museum now not only tells the story of William Smith and Scarborough in the early 1800s, but also explores the 180 million years of earth history that literally underpin the building.
The three gallery spaces are very different: the Rotunda Gallery explores the history of the museum; Shell Geology Now is all about the coastline today; and the final galley is for temporary exhibitions.
