Award-winning museum of Great Yarmouth life

time and tideSet in a beautifully preserved Victorian curing works, Time and Tide tells the story of Great Yarmouth from its Ice Age origins to the present day. Discover the town’s rich maritime heritage and its development as a popular seaside resort. Hear gripping tales of wreck and rescue and meet colourful characters who made their living from the sea.

This dynamic and family-friendly museum places fascinating archive films alongside recreations of local cottages, a noisy 1950s fish wharf and the charming shops of a 1913 ‘Row’. The highlight is the unforgettable chance to step inside one of the towering original smokehouses, where the smell of smoked fish still lingers. One of Norfolk’s real treasures, this superb museum is the best introduction you will find to the fascinating and historic town of Great Yarmouth.
