A thoroughly enjoyable experience ....very up to date interactive features mixed with the old exhibits which I remember from previous visits years ago during my school days. Good value for money. Nice restaurant for refreshments.

Norwich Castle is a great day out. The kids loved it and there is a lot for them to do and see. We have a museum card and you can go as many times as you like. A great place to see lots of historical facts and have fun at the same time. Go enjoy.

Worth a visit with some very good collections of both art and artefacts. Only £1 for the last hour so an easy end of the day.

Certainly worth a visit if you're looking for something to do in Norwich other than shopping. Really well laid out and varied exhibits, ranging from Prisoners and treatment of prisoners at the Castle, to stuffed animals and birds of all types, pottery and so on. well worth the entrance fee.

We've been to two exhibitions in the past few months and they have been excellent in presentation and information. Really pleased that we took out a years membership!
