Lovely museum with plenty of staff but most apathetic about their jobs, no passion for the building.

Such a disappointment only older gentleman giving information - a great place, shame it's not a national trust, as girls working either oblivious to surroundings, no knowledge or unwilling to explain. Great muesium!, but could be better.

A museum with real potential, very beautiful rooms, with subtle interpretation panels. Some rooms work better than others. My favourite were the Georgian and the Toy room. The garden out the back was a lovely place to soak in some Norwich sunshine. It felt like a hidden gem, various herbs planted along the borders for you garden enthusiasts plus a... More

I should have checked before making the trip to Norwich but assumed that such an important place would be open at weekends. Alas it is only open on Wednesdays and Sundays. I realise this is a financial issue but such a disappointment. Looking through the windows was tantalising and made the closure feel worse. Hopefully Norwich will be able to... More

Strangers' Hall was inhabited by rich merchants and politicians since the Middle Ages. The house keeps several pieces of furniture, clothes and interesting information from different times and different people who lived there in the past.

We took advantage of the "Pop in for a pound" offer, where it only costs a quid if you go round for just the last hour of the day that they are open. What a great idea! Yet another establishment in Norwich that could teach others in the country/world something about welcoming visitors. As we only had an hour then... More

I have passed the sign on the road a hundred time and decided to go in and take a look. I was surprised b how much there was and how the house has been in the middle of things in Norwich for a long while. The garden was great too.

Gave a good historical account of life in Norwich with lots of interactive activities. Lots of rooms to explore and stairs to climb.

We visited this museum during a short break to Norfolk - despite having lived here some years back, and visiting often, it wasn't really on our radar in the way that the Castle Museum and the Bridewell Museum were. We dedicated the morning to it before moving onto Dragon Hall in the afternoon and, the more I think about it,... More
