The museum is not easy to find. Once there it is far bigger than one might expect and some sections look and smell like a busy fishing port. Those areas are very realistic. Other sections are still being fully developed but this does not in...More

We really enjoyed the fishing history of Yarmouth and definitely left with an appetite. This is a very nice museum with lots of hands-on and wonderful facts.

What a great museum for the whole family. We came without Children and found it fascinating, but there are many interactive things to do for everyone and you really can imagine the fish smoking up in the smoking rooms. One not to miss!
