Pannett Park exists thanks to the generosity of Robert Elliott Pannett.  The Whitby solicitor spent his life in local government and in service to the townsfolk of Whitby.  He spent 22 years as Clerk to the District Local Board and then became a County Councillor and later Alderman.
He was also a J.P, a Director of Whitby and North Yorkshire Building Society, a life Governor of the Cottage Hospital, Chairman of Whitby Waterworks and a supporter of many charities.

The Pannett Art Gallery and Whitby Museum are both housed in the same building.

The Friends of Pannett Park were formed in July 2005.  It has 60 active members and works in partnership with Whitby Town Council and Scarborough Borough Council.  The aim of the Friends of pannett Park is to restore the heritage features and to protect and improve the park for the benefit of all.

The Floral Clock in Pannett Park was originally installed in 1953 to commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II on June 2 nd 1953.
It fell into disrepair in 1979 and remained that way until 2006 when the Friends of Pannett Park secured grants and sponsorship to reinstate the clock, create the Whitby Time Line, and carry out landscaping improvements to the surrounds.

The Whitby Museum houses many different collections, some of which are listed below:

Whitby Museum welcomes all members of the public and offers a range of services to School Parties and welcomes children who are well supervised and have a clear goal to achieve during their visit.
Teachers are welcome to make a visit free of charge prior to the group visit to look around, discuss any particular needs and make all necessary arrangements.

School parties are welcomed and helped by Museum Volunteers as often as possible.
Teachers / accompanying supervising adults are free including the bus / coach driver.
