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.

The history of a house through the centuries, with a rabbit warren of fascinating rooms. Really informative staff and a lovely garden.

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.

Visited with my 9 year old daughter during half term....lots of activities including a mad hatters tea party on the day we went. Great value, costing just under £8 for the two of us, and we did walk round twice as my daughter absolutely loved it. Very well informed and friendly guides in some of the rooms, so many beautiful...

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,
