Set in one of the UK's best-preserved Victorian herring curing works, Time and Tide tells the story of Great Yarmouth from its Ice Age origins to the present day.
The original Tower Fish Curing Works was built c.1850 and expanded in 1880. After its closure in 1988 and an extensive redevelopment project in the 1990s, the site reopened as a museum in July 2004.
The museum is centred around Great Yarmouth's rich maritime heritage and its development as a popular seaside resort. It features a typical 'Row' from 1913, where visitors can see inside the homes of a local fisherman and his neighbours, and a Yarmouth quayside from the 1950s.
Further displays explore the history of the town and the herring curing works, as well as East Anglia's relationship with maritime Europe.
