Located on the Quayside in Great Yarmouth. Parking within a reasonable distance without paying is almost impossible. The museum has quite alot of interesting items, but lacked something -a manequin of the famous man. The museum had a small exhibit -the inside of a sailing ship. plenty of pictures and the dirt on Nelsons seedy love life. If your interested... More

Took about an hour and a half to go round. Good facilities for a small museum - cafe, toilets and lifts. Interesting facts about Nelson and unusual details about the man and the myth. We learnt a lot about his personal life and found out about his connection with the local area.

This is such a good museum recording the life of such an important person. There is no need to describe it further... just visit it.

A modest sized museum hosting a collection of items linked to the great man himself. When I visited there were two ladies on duty & a gentleman, whose knowledge was encyclopedic, when talking about Nelson. Well worth having a coffee/tea & cake after the tour within the cafe area. A very friendly & well run museum.

Nelson was born a sickly child in the county of Norfolk, England but he was to become a hero and legend during his short life. This delightful museum is dedicated entirely to Nelson's life from childhood to his untimely death at the battle of Trafalgar. Prior to Trafalgar Nelson had won many sea battles; defeating the French, Spanish and Danes.... More

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
