  • Usually a great place to come. A former workhouse full of history with regular exhibits. A working farm with Suffolk Punch horses and a large outdoor play area. Only loses a star as when we drove to visit in the school holidays it was closed at the weekend, despite this information not being on the website.
  • With all of the available museums under the Norfolk Museums Pass, this was the one we travelled to the most. Excellent information spread around a very large area. All of the displays captured every one of us, at all ages. Staff were very friendly and passionate. Glad to see the new funding has made the museum even better but at time of writing, the upstairs was closed off for refurbishment). The kids (ages range from 4-12) fully enjoyed the outside play park, again and again. The park consists of a large slide and rope system over multiple levels, a separate smaller area for younger children, zip line, wooden forts, picnic tables, dedicated toilets and a small chalet with vending machine (that was not operational the last time we went) and water taps.
  • Great for kids. Lots of space. Lovely historic attraction
  • Very good museum. Lots to see and enough to keep the kids interested.
  • Very warm welcome, easy layout, interesting facts and well laid out, cherry on the cake was the new born lambs and piglets
