Visited Strangers' Hall Museum recently which was very interesting. It is a Tudor house one of the oldest buildings in Norwich which was once home to wealthy merchants and mayors who made medieval Norwich a great city. It is furnished in the styles of many historical periods from Tudor to Victorian and became one of the first social history museums... More

I visited Stranger's Hall yesterday as part of Norwich's free Heritage Open Days offer. The weather wasn't great but that didn't stop the lovely people of Stranger's. I found several friendly and smiling faces throughout the house and garden and they all looked rather cosy in their red jumpers! I treated myself to a Summer Punch on offer in the... More

Its fascinating history & informative, attentive staff make Strangers' Hall a place that is well-worth visiting. Good for young children too. Good value with the Norfolk Museums pass.

A beautiful old house and a very interesting way to spend part of your afternoon in Norwich. We popped in because it was raining and are so glad we did. It was great value for money, there were so many things to look at and we enjoyed walking round the maze-like layout and soaking up the atmosphere. The garden looked... More

Full of intriguing objects, Strangers Hall is absolutely fascinating. Just when you think you've seen the best part, you find yourself in the midst of another spectacular room! It is atmospheric and captures the imagination. A great place to learn more about Norwich, too.

An incredible 'find' - once inside it's easy to forget you are in a busy city. A lovely peaceful garden. Recommended!

There is so much to do and to see in Norwich, and the Strangers' Hall is a 'must'. One of the oldest buildings in Norwich, and a traditional style museum - no unnecessary gimmicks that blight so many other museums and galleries. Do not miss the garden, which is maintained by enthusiastic volunteers.

This is one of Norwich's oldest buildings and full of history. Lots of rooms to walk around showing objects and tapestries of the Tudor and Stuart times. Also a room full of historic toys which my children find fascinating. At Christmas time they hold special events with costumed people, activites and puppet shows. There is also a lovely garden. Cheaper... More

This museum is a gem, spanning centuries of daily life for generations of Dutch families who came over here to revitalise the textile industry and escape persecution in Europe. We only had an hour in which to see everything, but we managed to do so, even seeing the delightful knot garden in the courtyard.
