If you want to know the commercial history of norwich then this is a must.All done in a very easy to digest way.
This is a very informative and interesting museum about the social life and economic history of Norwich and East Anglia. The people behind it really manage to convey the sense of pride of their city that a lot of people still have. I was very impressed with the room on textile production in Norwich, a tradition that goes back to... More
I took my three granddaughters to visit the museum and they thoroughly enjoyed it. The museum is full of artefacts from the past of old Norwich and its manufacturing base. The boot and shoe. Industry, Colmans mustard , Drinks, Laurence &Scot , Boulton & Paul's , the list is endless.
I'm not a native of Norwich but the visit to the Bridewell was a great experience. My aunt who was born in Norwich but hadn't been back for 47 years was impressed, especially with the staff who helped her find locations of yesteryear. Great museum, with great staff and well worth a visit.

I took my grandchildren ( 13 and 10 ) .we spent over two hours inside and did'nt scratch the surface. We all learnt a lot, brilliant ly laid out to hold the interest of all ages. We will go back at half term!

This museum is not too large and so the exhibits can be absorbed without... More

Spent a very interesting and enjoyable few hours here. It's all very well laid out and easy to view, showing many everyday items from the past. We live in Norwich and decided to look at what was "on the doorstep". Glad we did ! It's easy to walk past the museum as the lanes area around it is full of... More
