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

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.

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!
