True's Yard Fisherfolk Museum

True’s Yard Museum is a social history museum in King’s Lynn's historic North End fishing quarter. Although most of the North End was knocked down in the slum clearances of the 1930s and 1960s a few cottages survived and these have been renovated and now form part of this independent museum.

True's Yard also runs day schools and presents talks and organises walks and exhibitions.

True’s Yard is a unique heritage site and tourist attraction but it is also an important town archive. The Museum is a treasure house of local history with a variety of primary and secondary sources. Whether researching your family history, local history, studying for a qualification or just interested in history, you can access our exceptional social and cultural history and take advantage of the wealth of information at our Research Centre. A Reference Library, Archive Room and Reading Room with history files are all at your disposal. A large Sound Archive containing hours of easily accessed recordings can be listened to as well. Staff and volunteers can offer advice and guidance.
