I liked the table set with food. The old undercroft was the most interesting architecture but no info that I saw explaining its time or construction; but staff told me. Staff very welcoming and well informed. I doubted the arrangement of some rooms as typical of the periods more a period collection in a room.

Strangers' Hall Museum is a medieval maze-of-a-house with rooms set up with artefacts and furniture from different periods of history. I am not usually a big fan of museums but this one kept me fully entertained for a couple of hours,

I enjoyed my visit to Strangers Hall with my wife, there are a lot of things to see in a relatively small building, each room is different, there are information plaques and papers everywhere, lots of different artifacts are spread around and there's even the odd tray of coins lying around that can be handled, along with old toys, clothing...

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.

I am glad you enjoyed the museum but am very sorry that you felt that our staff were not as engaged or knowledgeable as you had hoped. I am not sure what happened on that particular day; all members of our (actually rather small )home team staff ( three individuals all working part time) love our jobs, know the building... More

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

I am so sorry you were disappointed by not being able to visit Strangers' Hall on a Saturday, as I fully appreciate this is the day our visitors expect us to be open. I thought I would let you know that as of this week, Strangers' Hall is now open on four days of the week until the end of... 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.
