On previous visits to the town the museum has always been closed. It is much than it looks from the outside. This free museum is well laid out full of interesting exhibits. We had a lot of fun dressing up, trips down memory lane for my friend who 20 years older than me. It says recommend visit 1-2 hours I think we did it in under an hour. Neither of us stop to read information , thankfully it's not a museum with a lot of reading . The kitchen exhibit, 1950s & camera display was brilliant. The only I would say was very disappointing no photography. We both take a soft toy out with us on our trips out who like to have their photos taken looking at things we see. We also like to take photos of each other as memories . Not that score I wouldn't recommend this delightful museum, it's a shame really as both the local museums of any note the ancient house in Thetford & Moyses hall in Brandon allow photography and it just adds to the enjoyment & pleasure…

Our grandson loved it. Good history of he area and replica of the Mildenhall treasure. Unfortunately it was only open on certain days in August and heycould have done with more holiday activity for the children. Hence only tree stars.

This little museum is packed with reassures from local memorabilia to a display about Short Stirling aircraft. They happily do small special events and it’s a nice venue for that.

Very well laid out museum. Good interpretation. Nice replica of a first century Roman silver treasure and a fifth century warrior burial.

I was told by a friend there was an original raleigh police bike on show in the museum! A keen cyclist myself was so exicited to see the british racing green cycle on display. Ridden by the locally famous PC308 John Gowing, a nice tribute to the now retired bobby! Staff are very friendly and knowledgable!…
