“Great museum”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

A really interesting museum in Stowmarket, in a lovely setting, lots of activities for children, and very good displays, animals to pet, a mill and windmill, and a spectacular river walk.

“Excellent day out”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

So much to see, and so much of interest. There is something for everyone here - adults and children. Spent 5 hours here and didn't see it all! Friendly and helpful staff too, and great little cafe. Highly recommended.

“History of East Anglia throughout the ages brought to life!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

A wonderful place to visit for children of all ages (us blokes never grow up!) ;) - An absolute must for young families for a day out, perfect for picnics or from the cafe. Beautiful river, ponds, farm animals, steam engines galore and both water & wind mills. Rural East Anglia played out from all the ages.
