A venue of culture.

Whether you want to enjoy the modern art gallery, relish all the museum has to offer, or even quietly contemplate the day away over a coffee and a bite to eat in our restaurant, there's something for everyone, whatever your interests. 

We're proud to be non-profit and here for the community, constantly celebrating our amazing heritage and reconnecting with cultures past and present. 

We are unique and we believe the Whitaker with all its diversity and wonderful lost history has something new to say to everyone who visits us.
