This museum gives a great insight into life, work and history of the area. The staff are very friendly, the exhibits well presented and the museum brings home the effects of WW11 on many cities in England. Well worth a visit.

I work in a primary school and we quite often visit for various reasons. The staff are amazing, very knowledgeable, good with the children and always keep interested. We also recently had a staff training day there, which was great fun and informative.

There's so much to learn about Yarmouth. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the restaurant serves delicious food. You need at least 4 hours to take in all the info. A must see for history buffs like us.
