Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On all our visits to Dunwich we’d never been here.

The volunteer manning the desk explained the model of the city as was - Dunwich was much bigger than I thought. He told us a bit of history and there are informative displays and a video upstairs.

If taxidermy is not your thing you can give half of upstairs a miss. It was a done thing.

Entrance is free. The suggested donation of £3 can be paid in cash or by contactless.

Worth a quick visit to learn the history of Dunwich, which was a city.

What a great place to visit. Very interesting and informative on the history of Dunwich and the lost city.Well worth a visit and would appeal to children’s as well. The volunteers on duty were very knowledgeable. Admission is free but they welcome donations.

Dunwich once a major seaport lost to the sea. The museum has a model of the once trading port that silted up. Many artifacts inside.

This was a great experience, learning about the history of Dunwich unlocked a hidden gem of England's past lost to time and the cold uncaring sea. A fascinating journey from Vikings and Bishops to a sea port of the ages only to be claimed by the very sea that made the settlement prosper.
The museum is set out well and don't miss out on the upstairs area.

Small museum charting the demise of what was a huge influential port on the East Coast. Lottery funded and encourages contributions but essentially free to visit if you're on a budget - no one is excluded here. Lots of artefacts, maps and images to see, Don't miss the upstairs displays - well worth viewing. Super friendly and very knowledgeable lady on duty when we visited (originally from Texas we believe). Highly recommended.

We were only in the locality for one whole day so had to be a little choosey where to visit. A museum is always a great choice when it's raining and this little gem did not disappoint. Fascinating story of the history of Dunwich with lots of finds to see and stories to hear. Next time we hope to make it to the beach and hear the ghostly bells!

Very interesting and very informative. So much to read about and learn how Dunwich was so large and how the power of the sea changed its fortunes
