EDUCATION & RESOURCES
With a long and rich association with Whitby Jet, W Hamond and our Museum of Whitby Jet are home to many wonderful pieces - alongside documented information on its history and industry - collected over many years.
JET CUSTODIANS FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
Through every assemblage of important historical items comes a responsibility to research, exhibit and educate.
W Hamond are dedicated to providing an awareness to the vast historical importance, unique geomorphology and unrivaled beauty of the gemstone that is Whitby Jet.
We believe that passing on our knowledge of Whitby Jet to today's generation is a important function, and through our Museum of Whitby Jet we have a wonderful opportunity to share the single largest collection of Whitby Jet specimens, jewellery and ornaments in the world.
With new pieces constantly being discovered and displayed, no two visits to our museum will be the same. We also offer access to a private library for anyone interested in researching Whitby Jet.
Recognising a curriculum use, we are more than happy to accommodate school parties and groups by prior arrangement (necessary given the size of the Museum). Teachers and group leaders are invited to make a preparatory visit to the Museum and discuss requirements.
