Who would have thought this amazing building would be right on the South Quay in Gt Yarmouth?!! So much to see and do - fantastic things for kids to look at, touch and play with, and lots for the grown ups, too. History was never this much fun when I was young!!!!

We have been meaning to visit this museum for several years, and finally got around to it over Easter. The museum is small, and has several rooms filled with all sorts of interesting things. As National Trust members the visit was free for my family, so we cannot really grumble about value for money. The museum is most definately not... More

A very interesting insight into Yarmouth history. If you are not a National Trust member it is worth paying anyway

When we went in the person taking the money gave us a potted history of the place and told us what Rooms we would be walking around, kitchen, scullery etc. there is also an information booklet in each room too. We found it interesting and informative and particularly liked one of the rooms upstairs where you could put on headphones... More

Although this venue is slightly over priced it is ideal place for children and adults to explore the mystic underwater world of the oceans. A huge variety of fish to observe including Seahorses. It's a must visit place.

This museum is an old town house that has been converted to a museum with all the rooms made out as they apparently would have been. There is a fair bit to see and some interesting facts and information dotted around. If not for the kids' activity, though, I think my six year old might have got a bit bored.... More

As a resident of the town all my life I waited to visit until my 61st year as it was 'free' to NT members. Really it wasn't worth the visit despite a very informative guide and certainly not worth the normal admission fee. As a keen follower of history I was disappointed.

An old merchant's house right on the quay in Great Yarmouth, this is an important historic house where it's said the death of Charles I was plotted. The clothes and armour for children to try on helps history come alive and makes it more exciting and enjoyable
