  • Great place to visit. Especially if, like me, you have a history obsessed teenage son! Incredibly reasonable entrance fee and friendly knowledgeable staff. Make sure you watch the slide show which plays in one of the rooms. It's amazing how it's been so beautifully restored.
  • Fantastic hidden jewel. Volunteers who run the place of knowledgeable and friendly. Well worth a visit.
  • Fantastic, I haven't been back here for over thirty years, last time I visited it was a shell. amazing what a change, they have done a brilliant job here it's full of local historical artefacts and memorabilia. My children really enjoyed their visit to top it all off. Well done.
  • Absolutely fantastic the whole family had a great time. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Give it a go, you won't regret it.
  • Not very easy to find but well worth the effort. The Harwich Society have worked so hard over the years to bring this fascinating place back to its original condition. Plenty to see and lots to interest visitors. Make sure you give it a visit. The volunteers are very helpful and knowledgable. Jim & Marianne. June 2017
