Experience the height of the fishing industry of Great Grimsby! A job often described as the 'most dangerous peacetime occupation in the UK', these men literally risked their lives in order to bring home fish to a port described as 'the world's premiere fishing port'. Come and see their story!

Great Museum, enjoyed our visit very much, and thought at £6 , including guided tour of the trawler, represented good value. The trawler tour, and the guide, former skipper Bob, was superb and without doubt the highlight of the visit.

what a great time we had there, the trip round the fishing trawler was amazing, to see the conditions and lack of room plus amenities that the fishermen put up with will open your eyes wide.
