A journey into the town's colourful past awaits visitors as they descend into the prison cells below Grimsby Town Hall. Along the dark twisting corridors, and up and down winding staircases, are seen glimpses of the town's history hidden in mysterious nooks and crannies.

Exhibits include construction of the Royal Dock, the deprivation of the poor in the 19th-century, and the struggles against crime. Also recalled are the former glories of Grimsby Town FC and a theatre performance from 1890.
