An excellent facility for adults and children alike and particularly educational for children. Forget the amusement arcades and take children here on a rainy day, but well worth a visit on a sunny day. Has an excellent litle cafe and parking close by.

A lot of thought has gone into this place. Loved the recreated row and the fish section (which smelled of fish). £5.20 per adult but worth it.

We have been to just about all the museums in Great Yarmouth and this is bar far the best and most interesting, I am not usually a museum fan but found all of it very interesting. Learning all about the smoke houses and seeing the mock up of the old shops. You can spend a good couple of hours here... More

We did not have very long to look round here but it was worth a detour. Some excellent exhibits from the mackerel fishing industry and there were paintings from wonderful local artists such as James Dodds and Robert Ladbroke.
