We finally got there, as we walked up to pay, a precocious little girl tugged my arm and said "this place is amazing" - I just knew it had... More

Loads to see and learn about. Particularly liked the garden and playing the old fashioned games and the toy exhibits. The staff were very friendly.

A fascinating view into Norwich in the past, but a bit haphazard with not enough easily accessible information about each room. A minor criticism of a fascinating museum.

Sunday afternoon visit was a pleasure,we were first in(1 o'clock opening)so we had the place to ourselves for the first half hour. Lovely staff/volenteers with lots of knowledge on the house. Beautifully set garden. A hidden gem

V reasonably priced entrance for a family of five. A warren of a house with sections from various periods of history. Good information provided in each room and staff on hand to answer any questions.

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.
