Great Yarmouth's outstanding Time & Tide Museum presents their amazing 'Super Models' exhibition

The Time & Tide museum is one of Norfolk’s real treasures, and offers the best introduction you’ll find to the fascinating and historic town of Great Yarmouth.

Time & Tide Museum 
Set in a beautifully preserved Victorian curing works, Time & 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. 

 The museum regularly updates exhibitions and the latest one called 'Super Models' is a real winner, featuring characters from the movie 'One Million Years B.C.' and 'Wallace & Gromit - The Curse of the Were-Rabbit'.

This model of a Fisherman's Cottage was made by Norfolk model maker Joesph  'Darby' Evans. He often used recycled materials in his work. The cottage was made from salvaged wood that he helped to construct while workign as a pile-drive foreman
