Certainly a hidden gem in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire is ‘The Time Trap’ museum and I am ashamed to say that I have never visited although it is literally on my doorstep

Built in 1888 incorporating a Police station, Magistrates court and cells and it has been adapted into the Time Trap museum.

I booked myself and my Dad on the telephone as I struggled to negotiate the website to visit Monday at 10am.

At the desired time on Monday we arrive at the Town Hall Offices and shown where to enter the museum.

We were given a quiz sheet to fill in with answers all found within the museum on the information to read in posters or photographs. This was fun and gave a purpose to looking carefully at the presented information.

Remember to take any reading glasses as there is plenty to read and crammed full of information on Grimsby history, including football and theatre. Throughout the museum models and soundtracks help to guide you telling stories of back in the day.

Just to be aware there are a few small steps and uneven floors so probably not best if you feel unsteady on your feet, especially as the lights are dimmed.

What did surprise me was the size of the museum as I thought we would be in and out within fifteen to twenty minutes but we were nearer forty five minutes to an hour. Therefore definitely great value for money!

Definitely a hidden gem that I can not wait to tell people about and would love to hear your views and thoughts on the museum. My favourite parts are the theatre and the pub funnily enough, which are yours?

    Its natural to happen when something is too near your location you overlook it and it doesn’t seem a big deal. Loved the visuals. I liked the poster bills the most. Will keep in my list for future. Sweet info. Xx
