Nelson & Norfolk

Even though the museum is small it shows the life of Nelson very well. Its amazing how few people know he came from Norfolk.

I was keen to visit, and was not allowed in as they were closing at 15:30 on Friday afternoon. Which explained why I could park outside.

A small museum, but well worth a visit. We were able to park right outside for free (90 minute stay) They have a lot of Nelson memorabilia, which is well displayed.

We went to the museum as part of a day out in Great Yarmouth in June, and to be honest it wasn't that exciting.The staff were very friendly and i think the cost was about right i wouldn't have paid more.

Admiral Lord Nelson is my my former sailor husband's hero, therefore a visit to this Museum dedicated to Horatio was a must. It's fair to say we both probably found it to be an extremely interesting experience and I certainly came away knowing a little more about the man and his rather tangled personal life!
