The ROSS TIGER trawler will be closed for internal maintenance and repainting from 8th December 2014 and will re-open for tours on Tuesday 23rd. There will be NO public tours during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during these maintenance works.
Our ex-trawlerman trawlerguide will instead be offering hourly tours of the attraction within the heritage centre building Tuesday to Thursday.

Fishing has often been described as one of the toughest jobs in the world. So why not come along and find out for yourselves and sign up as a crew member and witness first hand on a journey of discovery at the Fishing Heritage Centre, Grimsby.

Bring along the whole family and navigate your way around Grimsby's Fishing Heritage Centre and discover what life was like for trawlermen and their families in the 1950s. Experience the sights, sound and smells of the times that follow visitors through the interactive displays.

Join the fishermen in the Freeman's Arms, come and experience the moving deck, visit the dockside shop and queue up for some fish and chips!

Get your ticket from the signing on desk and climb aboard the Ross Tiger trawler moored adjacent to the museum and listen to some of the tales that our trawler guides will entertain you with from their days at sea. (Some restriction may apply).

The museum is suitable for all ages, we also have an easy access route. Many interactive displays and get dressed up as a fisherman or apprentice boy.

Browse the gift shop with its unique items, we are currently stocking a vast range of Parlane items at prices to suit all pockets, as well as some old favourites and plenty of pocket money items.

Why not relax and unwind in the cafe which serves a variety of coffees, teas and cold drinks, and has locally produced cakes to jacket potatoes and paninis.  You can also view the current exhibition whilst relaxing with your meal.

There are two exhibition rooms at the museum and both are free of charge, both are open during museum opening times.

We look forward to welcoming you to the museum.
