Time and Tide Museum, Great Yarmouth

Time and Tide Museum is centered around Great Yarmouth's rich maritime and fishing heritage, mainly focusing on the history of Yarmouth and the herring curing works. As Norfolk's third largest museum, there is something for everyone here. The museum offers various exhibitions, including a typical row, a type of narrow street from 1913. There is also a Yarmouth fishing wharf from the 1950s as well as hands-on displays, films, audio guides, and children's activities. You can even take the wheel of a steam drifter. When you need rest, relax in the spacious courtyard beneath a canopy of sails, surrounded by historic fishing boats.

  • This is a truly wonderful museum full of fascinating and moving insights into the world of those living and working in Great Yarmouth 200 years ago and up to modern day. We loved the stories and the sights and smells of the herring industry and the reconstruction of the Rows of houses. I loved it all and it's absolutely essential to visit to fully appreciate this historical town.
  • Great place for all the family, have to tour interactive experience and the whole thing comes alive, very entertaining ,formative and engaging for the children! Always a favourite to visit, lots of heritage and easy accessible, has a lift for upper floors and a shop with cafe, park opposite the site. Lots about the local history to offer and learn about you can spend a day here and need to re visit it!
