  • A great museum for children to visit. I take my 2 year old and 5 year old to all the trails. They love learning about all the different subjects. The staff are friendly and helpful as well as encouraging the children to explore. The annual family ticket is a bargain!
  • We'll set out museum with activities in each room for kids so adults can concentrate on exhibits.
  • I enjoyed the visit, it's an interesting old house with some quirky displays. My mum, who has mobility difficulties, found it hard to get around - that is the nature of old houses, but she didn't have a great deal accessible to her.
  • Beautiful building that houses this compact local museum, packed with activities for kids that adults will enjoy too. History clubs for kids and teenagers are award winning, providing quality time for participants as well as amazing events, such as themed murder mysteries, for public. Worth a visit, value for money.
  • Another museum gem in Norfolk/Suffolk area. Excellent activity things to do.
