Unfortunately the Museum is no longer open (summer 2019) I don't think it will be re-opening. I'm not sure if the museum contents have been donated elsewhere (Time & Tide Museum?)

Sadly this place is closed and there is at the moment no plans to reopen it. This is shame because there are so many thing of interest to look at and the stamproom just blow me away at what could be done. I do hope it reopens but I don't think it will. .

Surprised my Dad and wife with a visit to this little gem of a museum. Set out in the old gas showroom which is a lovely setting. The exhibits are very interesting and bring back memories of our childhood. The ladies in there were very knowledgable and very proud of what they have! Should be the No 1 attraction in Yarmouth and I would encourage you to visit an ideal visit when raining. Will be recommending and visiting again soon

lovely museum, small but sweet, was in there over 2 hours, very knowledgeable staff and very interesting stories. The lady Valerie (in her 80's I believe), who owns it was not there at the time, but she pays all the running costs her self and donates all the entrance money and collection box money to children's hospices in memory of her son. Very admirable. At the time of our visit adults were £3 and children over 5 £1. Well worth a look
