Stranger's Hall museum provides a unique experience allowing you to look back into the past through different time periods through different rooms. The new text panels and updated layout make an informative and enjoyable experience, highly recommended!

The whole museum is arranged to give you a good view of the domestic life thro' the ages. We (at 70) like it and it enthralled the 10 year old grandchild.

Strangers hall is one of those places that doesn't seem to have changed much since I was a child but my daughter asks every year without fail if we can go to and have a look around again. It's not a full day activity but you can easily spend a few hours looking around and there are often crafty activities... More

Visiting the Stranger's Hall Museum is the closest thing to time travel. Enter each of its rooms is like stepping into different centuries. It is a delight to see objects in the place that used to occupy in the house and not into displays as we often see on conventional museums. Highly recomended.

Run by a wonderful band of dedicated volunteers.A modern day Tardis, looks nothing from the outside but step into a wonderful medieval merchants home, full of wonderful oak timbers and glorious windows. Something for everyone. Lots of up and down stairs for those who have to think about such things.

This was a home to wealthy merchants and Mayors when Norwich was in its heyday, this beautifully preserved building dates back to 1320. its like stepping into a time machine, we took a stroll in the lavender-filled garden, and maybe meet a costumed character from times gone by… We enjoy this place so much

This house (collection of houses) is tucked away up an alley and is difficult to find if you rely only on the maps which come with the tourist brochures. But it really is worth the effort. It gives a better impression of the crowded back streets of a medieval town and the accommodation found there than anywhere else. And all... More

The Strangers' Hall looks small from the outside but inside it is very large with a maze of rooms and staircases. You are left free to wander at will and to see the rooms laid out in different period styles. The garden is an oasis and obviously well-loved and cared for. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the city.

I probably passed in front of this place at least once a week until my parents decided to come visit me in June. I wasn't particularly interested in the museum itself but in the architecture. The initial house got extended through the decades/centuries which makes it a very original hall. The garden is lovely and deserves a visit as well... More
