Plans have been developed for the exhibition space at exciting new visitor centre at the North End Shipyard.

The North End Shipyard is located on one of Hull's oldest streets, High Street. It will become the new home and dry-berth for the Arctic Corsair.

The gallery will fully engage with the Arctic Corsair and historic landscape seen from its windows, focusing on trawling and the process of trawling in the post WW2 period the Arctic Corsair represents.

The whole shipyard and its exhibition will stand alone as Hull’s exciting new visitor attraction, displays will compliment and work in harmony with the new displays at the Hull Maritime Museum, which will also look at earlier fishing and community life.

The visitor centre will showcase many stories of the Arctic Corsair and the historic landscape of the North End Shipyard.

Exciting audio visual effects, film, interactivity and of course historic collections will tell the story of Hull’s mighty trawling industry.

Many display cases are being designed for maximum flexibility to allow volunteers to easily rotate community collections, telling their stories first-hand, ensuring there will always be something new to see at the North End Shipyard.

The North End Shipyard will become the permanent home of the Arctic Corsair
