Time Trap museum at Grimsby Town Hall
Discover this surprising attraction within the former police cells of Grimsby Town Hall.
It will take you on a time travel journey to uncover the town’s colourful past. As you pass through dark, twisting corridors you will be able to explore mysterious nooks and crannies and make your way up and down winding stairs. You will discover the town’s treasures as you piece together the jigsaw that reveals how Grimsby developed.
The old Police cells and prisoner exercise area have been transformed into the Time Trap museum which maps the development of the town into the largest fishing port in the world. It gives brief historical insight into many aspects of local life and shows how this development was fashioned by Law and Order, Disease and Death and indeed The Violence of Politics amongst many other things.
Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm, except bank holidays.
