About school visits
Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre has maintained a popular school visits programme for more than 20 years. In 2021, we received the Sandford Award for Heritage Education for the second time, highlighting the quality experience and educational value that a visit here offers. We’re proud of our special attraction and are confident it will take your visiting children on a learning journey they will remember and talk about for a long time.
Our multi-sensory exhibits, object handling, exhibitions and hands on interactives mean that children will engage in this rich topic, whatever their learning style. Cross-curricular opportunities will keep you inspired for more great ideas when you get back to the classroom.
We have resumed group bookings to the attraction and to allow for museum tours with limited sized groups. This is in accordance with our booking policy to prevent overcrowding within the building and Ross Tiger.
We are continually reviewing our procedures in line with latest Government guidance, with support from colleagues within the council’s health and safety team.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how we can help you further and arrange your learning sessions with us.
Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre in a Box
During the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been fortunate in securing funding that has supported our attraction and numerous projects. Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre in a Box is a new loans box service, featuring the sounds, smells and objects of the 1950s Home, Above Decks and Below Decks on a Grimsby Trawler. The project will soon be ready for loaning, so watch this space!
