Went her yesterday with my daughter, as we wanted to see the Frayed exhibition. Can't believe I've never been before. The exhibition itself was amazing - thought provoking, evocative and haunting. We looked around the museum exhibits too. It's really well done and easy to follow the history of the town that I was born in! Well worth a visit on any day, but I highly recommend the exhibition before it closes.

Wonderful exhibition "frayed" worth just visiting for that. Brilliant atmosphere around the museum and plenty for the children to do. Great customer service and lovely cafe, true continental service no rushing here.

I took my elderly parents to this museum - disabled access is brilliant and they were able to visit all of the exhibits. They (and we) were impressed with the presentation of the exhibits and the amount of information provided. The smoke-house still smells of herring (how do they do that?) and seeing parts of the factory still in situ brought it to life. Sadly, didn't have a great deal of time to go through the history of Great Yarmouth (mostly on the first floor), but my parents have said that they will go back to spend more time there.

Highly recommended.

The Old smoke house still holds the smell of smoking Herring. There is more to the ime & Tide Museum than this though. With themed Great Yarmouth history features as a resort and a lifelike presentation of rows houses and how people lived. The Restaurant is also of the best quality with Cake & Lunch of the best quality. Important to allow 3 or 4 hours for this trip as there is much to see and of course the Lunch to finish off.
