Moyse's Hall Museum, Bury St. Edmunds

(100+ reviews on the web)
History Museum Museum
For almost a thousand years Moyse's Hall has looked out over the Market Place of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. It has seen many changes since it was built in 1180 and has had a variety of different uses, including a tavern and a 'gaol'. Currently it's a museum which provides an excellent setting in which to trace the unfolding story of West Suffolk, through displays which range from prehistoric times right through to the present. Moyse's Hall's own story is as rich and varied as the collections which it houses.

  • A very interesting little museum with exhibits from the fun to macabre - all in a well preserved medieval town house.
  • A charming place to learn the history of the smashing town of Bury St Edmunds. Keep an eye out for the exhibitions: within the last year these have included Science Fiction (actual props from films such as Star Wars, Star Trek and Judge Dress) and Lego.
  • I love the tardis :)
  • Lots of great local history. Also enjoy the visiting exhibitions too.
