A fascinating museum that looks as if it hasn't changed for 50 years, but has an amazing array of exhibits. Well worth a trip on a wet day. Our friends from Kent want to go again as ther's so much to see.

I have 3 girls ages 5-9 and they all love coming here. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you. I take the kids here at least once a month so my wife can enjoy some retail therapy.

A very unique museum. Great exhibits on the history of the East Anglia region, diaramas and local history. The builing itself has an interesting architechture and is worth the visit.
