  • A friend and I took our combined 5 kids ages 14 to 8 to Gressenhall. It was a totally wonderful experience, even for reluctant-to-go-kids. They loved the playground and surrounding wilderness, and even the Museum won a huge round of applause. The "Museum" is so much more than it says on the website: it offers fascinating insights into life over a few hundred years. In almost every room there were hands-on learning experiences and even the teenagers loved dressing up in the clothes in most rooms. The farm was delightful and the kids action-packed-to-do-activity meant they were always observing, looking, learning, laughing. The staff were very welcoming and most helpful at all times. A huge THANKYOU. We had a fabulous time, yes, all of us had a fabulous time!
  • It is a wonderful day out for all ages on a wet or dry day! Lots of information about the exhibits! There is an amazing play area, tractor rides, walks, and a lovely light, bright and airy cafe!
  • Great museum for exploring the rural history of Norfolk. Excellent, knowledgeable staff.
  • Great for all ages. It was nice to see the history of farming in Norfolk as well as having the kid see the animals and play in the park.
  • Excellent place to take the family. Has a lovely big outside space as well as a small farm with working horses
