Reviewed November 25, 2013

See what life was really like for the fisherman. The living quarters, the hardships, food and weather they had to cope with.When you go round the centre it makes you feel as if you are on the trawler and how brave the fishermen where.

“A must see attraction.”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

We had a fantastic visit and tour with John, very knowledgeable and entertaining. The Centre take`s round a Trawler showing the different aspects of Fishing. Then a Tour included in the price round a complete Trawler, put`s the visit in perspective.

“Great place to visit”
Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

This place is a little gem,went recently with our 6 and 11 yr olds. The tour round the trawler was brilliant as our guide actually used to work on the boat. The museum itself is interesting and had things for kids to do. All this for just £12 for a family ticket. Well worth a visit.

“trawlermen”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Excellent museum realistically showing the lives of trawlermen. John the guide had been a trawlerman and added significantly to our knowledge of the precarious lives of those at sea. Thoroughly enjoyable for all the machinery and the representations of daily life aboard a trawler.Children would like this too
