Was down in Grimsby for the weekend and my step dad really likes fishing so we decided to go for a look. It's very informative and well laid out. It may not be everyone's cup of tea but it definitely kept us entertained for 45 - 60 mins. Well worth a look!

It maybe not everyone's cup of tea but I love it! Always have since a child and try and visit at least once a year to see if anything has changed (rarely does) but it's fantastic none the less! Could do with a new feature here and there maybe would be my only input for improvement and maybe market the... More

An entertaining trip back in time to life on board a trawler. Make sure you book to go on the Ross Tiger trawler.

What a great museum, very informative and hands on a fantastic day out. There is also a chance to see a private art exhibition and have a very nice meal downstairs in the café.
