This is well worth a visit, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. This used to be the Mayors house and is laid out as it was in his time. You learn about their food, furniture and the running of the household, their was also a man in costume playing an instrument which was invented in Norfolk.

My husband and I popped in to the Museum just before it closed and we whipped round in record time. I had not been since I was a school girl. It is simply fascinating, with lots of nooks and crannies, a peaceful garden, wonderful wooden floors, doors and panelling and a room full of old toys. We both want to... More

This amazing off the beaten track is probably the best unknown visitor attraction in Norwich. The volunteers are totally engrossed in the history of the building imparting their knowledge to all.

Had an amazing afternoon in this wonderful historic house very informative with beautiful furniture to period. The garden is well kept and very secluded even though it is in the middle of a city, it is easy walking distance from the Norwich Lanes and Castle area.

A beautiful museum is such historic surroundings, there's much more to see than you first think here, it's a building with lots of nooks and crannies, quite a few steps tho, there are plenty of very interesting things to look at and you can go into the gardens as well. Well worth a visit.

A wealth of history in a fascinating old building. Each room was beautifully set out and contained such interesting pieces. Very informative descriptions. Would thoroughly recommend.

Small but perfectly formed with a great courtyard and garden, this old merchant's house is steeped in history. Lovely old furniture and artefacts and in a street full of idiosyncratic shops and cafes.

What a delight to find in the centre (almost) of Norwich. Having lived in North Norfolk for a number of years we have finally got to visit this delightful and wonderful building. Who would have thought that such a place still existed. Both my wife and l were surprised and urge more people to visit to support it.
