This is an amazing little museum tucked away in Great Yarmouth. It is packed full of interesting artifacts and information from an old street and its houses to Medieval Medicine and the historical fishing trade of the area. Well priced. Lovely little cafe next door.

Looking for some museum to look into. Went to this as it was all about the old Great Yarmouth! Not disappointed at all! Well presented and quite big place to look around. Learned about the fishing bygone era.
