It might only be a small, two-room museum but it is jam-packed with local history. Entry is free so no excuse not to venture in and learn something about Diss.

Although small this is a fascinating record of the past. I particularly like the then and now photos. It really needs a bigger venue to show all it has.

The museum is small but absolutely packed with loads of historic information and pictures. It's so interesting, and I'm fairly new to Diss so found it very informative, as did our ends who were visiting.

A small collection of artifacts from the Diss area in a small house on Market Hill. It could be improved yet is suitable for its surroundings and has a lot of events and some interesting exhibits.

Run by volunteers, this museum contains a lot of information about the town, its history and lots of artefacts. Of particular interest are the local collections which are lent to the museum by local collectors. Well worth an hour's musing.
