What a great day. Paid a visit with 7 kids and they all had a great day. Everything feels like it should it do, even the smell of the smoke sheds. Plenty to see and do, in a nice relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommendable

There's something for everyone (and all age groups) at this converted smokehouse in central Great Yarmouth - excellent value for the low entry price, and excellent refreshments and lunches at the on-site cafe. Easy parking just opposite - and you will need four hours parking, not just two.

The staff were friendly and helpful and a real... More

A gem of a museum. Really enjoyed our trip here with two young children. Everything is very interactive and lots for the kids to do including stencilling, rubbing and games. Interesting displays about the history of Yarmouth. Staff very friendly. Easy to park and not too expensive either. A good half a day visit.

What a pleasant surprise to find this gem of a museum amongst the little streets of Yarmouth! So much to see and really educational for all! Home cooked food and excellent prices. Well worth the entrance fee and well worth a visit!
