Explorations into Grimsby’s maritime history come at a rate of knots at the Fishing Heritage Centre, as salty sea dogs dive into leagues upon leagues of interactive exhibitions and displays. Visitors are transported back to the 1950s to learn how trawlermen went about their trade, and discover everything from how to fish, to why things like the shipping forecast were so important. Learning becomes reality on-board the retired 1950s trawler, Ross Tiger, with tastes of the ocean being dished up outside the Freeman’s Arms.
Families of two adults and up to five children can spend a year investigating all that the museum has to offer. This all-access pass allows visitors to get a thorough understanding of the local oceanic history, including the chance to explore all the nooks and crannies of the Ross Tiger. Social history is also up for investigation, with stories on what family life was like during the era, while sea legs can be tested on the moving deck exhibit.
The National Fishing Heritage Centre caught a hefty 4/5 thanks to TripAdvisor users, who were impressed by the informative staff and the interactivity of the museum.
A great place to learn about the Grimsby fishing history & good fun for kids too. Exciting walkway that sways like you are on a boat & lots of interaction for kids & adults alike.

The museum is housed in a modern building built in warehouse style and all the displays and scenes are very inviting and beautifully kept. There is a children's trail around the museum too with hands on activities.
