  • A great little museum and a great surprise, there's so much to do and see as well as being hands on, a real gem if you like museums. Staff very helpful and friendly.  more »

  • Peaceful and charming locally themed museum. As two adults we learned a lot of nice facts about the area. Lots of animal themes and interactive activities for children, plus a shop and friendly member of staff. Free entry but feel free to make a donation to this worthy little cause.
  • Located in an old church, doesn't look much but some quite interesting exhibits and information here.
  • Small and quiet, lots of taxidermist animals
  • A rather quaint museum explaining the natural history of North East Essex. Based in the former All Saints Church, it's not large by any stretch of the imagination but the collection is quite comprehensive and admission is free, so on that basis I'd say it's worth a visit!
  • Interesting place to visit in colchester

Where to stay in Colchester

A short train ride from London, Colchester is a university and working town. Hotels in the town center are near the main attractions, but for less expensive lodging consider a room near the university campus, which is situated in a tree-filled parkland.
