Whilst on holiday in Southwold which is 200 miles from home I felt that I must visit the Nelson Museum in Great Yarmouth as this was only another 20 or so miles away. Having visited the large museum in Portsmouth dedicated to the great man, as well as a tour of The Victory and then visiting his tomb in St... More

Set on the historic quay is a lovely Georgian house, home to the Nelson Museum. Very interesting and I like the way it's set out and displayed. Aimed at all ages with interaction for children. Well worth a visit. One of Gt Yarmouths hidden treasures!

The museum is small but very insightful and demonstrates well what it was like back in those times, not forgetting everything you would want to know about Nelson, even down to his love life. The exhibits are well displayed too. I learned something, good ahead and pay a visit. Staff are very friendly too.

Great for the history buff! Enjoyed looking around all the displays - lots to see. Cost about 6 UK pounds each, and it took about 1 1/2 hours to go around.

Very welcoming staff - museum well laid out and informative. Can see it all in an hour. Good vale for money and a part of local history well worth supporting.

Really thought this would be a good museum, but we were very disappointed. It's definitely on the small side and the contents were very average - certainly didn't do Nelson justice that's for sure. There is no doubt that this could be a cracking place to visit, but they need to do some work I'm afraid. Perhaps we expected too... More

This is a small but selective museum dedicated solely to the memory of |Lord Nelson a true son of Norfolk. It is currently in the process of being refurbished but will be ready when it re-opens on 1 February 2014. A little off the beaten track on South Quay in Great Yarmouth but well worth the visit. Highly recommended.

I have been meaning to write a review since visiting the museum at Great Yarmouth. I am local to Great Yarmouth and have never really been interested in the history of Lord Nelson until visiting Monmouth one cold and wet day. The local library there were exhibiting many, many original things of Lord Nelson, from a writing desk to a... More

Excellent history nod layout. They have a family learning room with dressing up clothes, should have had the grandchildren with us. Well worth a visit.

One of the most interesting museums I´ve ever visited beside Brooklands Museum. Not a lot of non interesting information, just a lot of interesting facts. I promise, I read every word. And top of it, the charming lady that was in duty that day was so dedicated her the whole thing and told us a wonderful story about her family... More
