Owner description: Come and enjoy this delightful museum which tells the story of West Norfolk. Meet Horace the taxidermy tiger in reception! Be amazed by the Bronze Age timber circle known as 'Sea Henge' which is the museum's stunning centrepiece. Learn about the people who meticulously crafted the timbers and study the marks left by their bronze axes. Browse around the 'West Norfolk Story'. Marvel at gold coins concealed inside a cow bone since Roman times. Imagine being a pilgrim in the thriving medieval port of King's Lynn or riding on a magnificent Victorian merry-go-round. With thousands of fascinating objects, interactive displays and audio guides, there's plenty to keep the whole family entertained. Family friendly events and museum trails throughout the year. Changing temporary exhibition programme, see website for details.

“Seahenge is the main interest here.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

The Bronze Age Seahenge display is what makes this museum worth visiting. Plenty of other exhibits if one has the time available. However about ten minutes away is 'True's Yard Fishing Heritage Museum' which we would recommend to get a better feel of life as it was in King's Lynn.

“SeaHenge Bronze Age timber circle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

This great little museum is even better value now that the SeaHenge display has been added. Visit the home of Seahenge - this astonishing Bronze Age timber circle was uncovered on a Norfolk beach. These Bronze Age timbers amazingly survived for 4000 years and the displays tell about the people who crafted them.
The fees apply in the summer season only - free admission October - March.

Summer season fees (2012)
Adult: £3.60
Concession: £3.00
Young Person (4-16): £2.00

“Worth a visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

This is a little gem of place. Good for a rainy afternoon with the kids, combine with the goal house and you have a good day out. Very cheap too!
