To keep up to date with news of exhibitions and other exciting things that are happening, sign up to the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre’s new regular newsletter.

 

The newsletter is the perfect way to keep up to date with the award-winning museum. Whether you’re a regular or from out of town, this is the best way to stay involved.

 

This new newsletter for the public follows the recent launch of one aimed at schools, which has seen a great response.

 

You can sign-up by clicking on the link on the home page of the Fishing Heritage Centre website here or go directly to Newsletter - Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre.

 

If you’re stuck for where to take the kids this half term, why not take a trip to Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre and see what the town was like in the 1950s.

 

The centre is a multi-award winning attraction with carefully crafted sets and original preserved trawler interiors. The design and set up helps to capture the atmosphere and essence of a remarkable way of life in one of the most dangerous occupations in living memory.

 

You will experience this twentieth century saga by signing on as a crew member and travelling in their footsteps – leaving your 1950s Grimsby home for a trip to the perilous Arctic fishing grounds and returning home to the comfort of the Freeman’s Arms public house!

 

Whilst there, don’t miss the opportunity to tour the magnificent M.F.V. ROSS TIGER – the earliest diesel engine side trawler preserved in the UK! The ship is maintained in a permanent mooring outside of the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre.

 

Tours offer a unique opportunity to see first-hand what it was like to be aboard a trawler in what is often described as Britain’s most dangerous job.

 

The sights, sounds, smells and drama will leave you with a whole new respect for the men who, for centuries, have pitted their strength against the elements to bring home their catch.

 

After visiting the museum, why not put your feet up and treat yourself to some coffee and cake at the onsite café. With a range of hot and cold food and drink, there’ll be something for the kids as well as the adults.

 

Aside from the museum itself, the centre also runs a number of exhibitions covering a range of topics, situated in the galleries. For example, The Greatest Story Never Told takes you back even further in time, looking at the origins of the town and how the Vikings are to thank for its name.
