Tucked away in the north end area of Kings Lynn is this delightful little museum which basically consists of a few old cottages that were occupied by the fishermen and their families back in the day.
It is extremely fortunate that they have not been demolished to be replaced with modern houses and one can easily spend a couple of hours looking around.

True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum is situated in a series of cottages that are, in effect, the sole remains of King’s Lynn’s old fishing community in the North End area of town. The exhibits are comprehensive and very well done and comprise of various galleries, a smokehouse, smithy and a couple of cottages.

Together, they successfully evoke the atmosphere, lifestyle and living conditions of a fishing community and I would certainly recommend a visit. And the nice wee tearoom is an added bonus.

A little off the beaten track, but well worth the effort to find it.
Staff are very helpful and the museum offers an excellent insight into the lives and work of the inhabitants of this small fishing community in former days. Of particular interest are the two renovated cottages- des.res. they were not!
There's so much history and exhibits to interest a true enthusiast.

A delightful little museum with friendly and helpful staff. It gave a snapshot of the past with its interesting exhibits. There is a lovely little cafe serving hot drinks and tasty cakes.

Delving into the history of the area and the people who lived here. Unromantic take on the hardships and the challenges of the life of the inhabitants, as well as some of their triumphs

Helpful staff. Got a Groupon coupon. Small but very informative. Loved the nautical themed blue and white at the cafe.

At first it looks just like a shop until you get inside and realise it's bigger than you thin, with a good history of the fishing era.

What a gem in a small corner of Kings Lynn.
For a small entry fee we were treated to a peek into the past history of fishing in the area.
The family stories of the fishing folk, and accompanying pictures were so interesting, as were the cottages in the yard that told their own story of the poverty and living conditions.
A trip through lives of struggle.
At the end of our journey we were treated to drinks and snacks in a lovely tea room inside the museum.
All were run by willing, cheerful and helpful volunteers.
Well worth the trip.
