Group from Vision Norfolk at Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth

Great Yarmouth hub group visit Time and Tide Museum

A group from the Great Yarmouth hub had a special visit to the town’s Time and Tide Museum.

The museum, which tells the story of Great Yarmouth from sandbank to thriving port and seaside resort, occupies the premises of the Tower Fish Curing Works, orginally built in 1850, and which closed in 1988.

The £4.7 million development opened to the public in 2004, and has been a finalist in both the Gulbenkian Award – Museum of the Year and the Council of Europe’ Museum of the Year.  It tells the story of teh town and its herring industry, amid lingering aromas of teh former smokehouse.

The Vision Norfolk group were given a special tour allowing them to touch exhibits and make the most of the museum’s collections.
