Details

Discover the history, rich maritime heritage & story of Great Yarmouth from the Ice Age to the present day.
Come and explore this museum housed in a converted Victorian herring curing works and take an exciting journey into the past.

Discover Great Yarmouth's fascinating history, its rich maritime and fishing heritage and some of the colourful characters who made their living from the sea.

Wander through a Victorian 'Row' and see inside a fisherman's home. Experience the heady atmosphere of a 1950s quayside, take the wheel of a coastal Drifter and hear gripping tales of wreck and rescue on the high seas. Follow Great Yarmouth’s transformation from a sandbank to the present day, through times of boom and bust and war and peace.

Not usually open to public; we will have our 1940's Row shop open for visitors. So bring along your ration book to get your ration of sweets from the shopkeeper.

Lastly, it will final day of our Drawn to the Coast exhibition. An exploration of Great Yarmouth and its coast through the lives and works of Turner, Constable and Cotman.
This exhibition looks at the British masters’ connection with the area and also the relationship between past and present. Paintings, drawings and etchings by JMW Turner, John Constable and John Sell Cotman are displayed alongside social history objects from the museum’s maritime collections.
