Went here on a trip with my dad (76) and daughter (27), we all live in Gt Yarmouth so we know abit of its history. My grandfather worked at a kipper house and the smell of the rooms reminded us of him. We could have spent more time in here but sadly my dad was very tired. The price is... More

We visitied the T&T museum on Saturday, this was our second visit. The museum is very well laid out and has some interesting facts and information about Yarmouth and its fishing industry. The best bit is the areas where the fish used to be smoked, it still smells lovely :-) Great for children and adults, theres lots of interactive activities... More

Not being from a port with so much history, it was very informative as to how the Port of Great yarmouth came to be. The area is rich in history from pre-Roman times right up to the 70's when the port declined. The museum covers all you need to know about the herring industry in Great Yarmouth and fishing generally... More

Thank you for your kind review; we are so glad that you enjoyed your visit. If you find yourself in the town some time soon with time to kill, why not pop down to the Quay and see our other museums, the Tolhouse and the Elizabethan House. They are also fascinating places full of rich history for all the family... More

We spent a lovely few hours wandering around, with Museum Trail sheets for the kids to fill in. The staff were very helpful, the cashier worked out which discount would be best for us as we had vouchers for a BOGOF deal that worked out cheaper than the family ticket. The exhibits were very interesting and the kids loved going... More
