Disappointing Visit!
Jun 2021 • Family
Absolute joke drove 100 miles and told we are not allowed into the museum despite the whole country now open! We walked off very upset as drove a long way with a young family and then looked at the website and saw if you phoned you could book. Promptly phoned the number and found we could book today but we were not told this in the museum! This is not a good advert for Grimsby. Not surprisingly the museum was empty I can see why!!!!!!

Missed the interactive child centred displays
Jul 2021
Due to CoVid restrictions all of the interactive displays were covered up. We were allotted a time of one hour, but managed to get round in 40mins because the 10 year old with us didn't have much to 'do'. It was interesting but without the interactive displays we were left wishing there was more. Lots of 'Do not touch' notices made it quite restrictive.
We also then went on the fishing boat, which was informative and interesting - guided tour

This is a great museum high lighting the fishermen's hard and dangerous life. The most dangerous peace time occupation. Easy to believe.

Fishing and history brought to life
Jun 2021 • Couples
We visited the Heritage Centre when it was rather rainy but it easily prevented us from having a miserable day ! The welcome from all the staff was genuine and they were all helpful. The displays gave us a good insight into the fishing industry in Grimsby in the 1950's. The highlight was a tour of the trawler Ross Tiger.

Excellent history of the fishing industry
May 2021
Paid a visit and so glad I did. The displays were so realistic and informative, unfortunately due to Covid restrictions the interactive displays were not available. However, even without these there was so much to see and learn.
We were also unable to visit the Ross trawler due to restrictions but that was one of those things.
If anyone is thinking of visiting, go for it but I would recommend booking I. Advance if you want to get the full experience.

So glad I wasn't a fisherman!
Sep 2020 • Couples
This museum gives some insight into how tough the life of a trawlerman must have been. Including lots of stuff about life on shore, from apprentice onwards. Really enjoyed it, and it'll be even better when the Ross Tiger is open again. The entrance cost, £6 per adult, seems very good value. Covid precautions in evidence throughout, including having to book a time slot to visit. Topped off with tea and a bun in the cafe.
