What a great museum for the whole family. We came without Children and found it fascinating, but there are many interactive things to do for everyone and you really can imagine the fish smoking up in the smoking rooms. One not to miss!

This place is amazing! The story of Great Yarmouth is so well put across here. The old smokehouse it is housed in can still be smelled. The replica of the old Rows is very well done and evocative of early memories. Excellent!
