Came here because my friend has an interest in this era. There is no parking which is always an inconvenience. The 'museum' is very small for what it is but nice to look around. We were finished in under an hour, there were no information texts in the rooms or guides which was a shame because we had plenty of... More

This is a very small museum but it is full of great objects and information. However you would spend an hour at the most here as all it really is is walking around a house set out in the Elizabethan period. Few activities for children like old toys and dressing up but otherwise not that exciting!

So we're in the area and as National Trust members we want to check out historical buildings in the area this was our first stop. The Elizabethan museum is a lovely place. We were told it's one of the smallest National Trust properties. It was lovely walking around as there was so much information shared. We went as a couple... More

Me and my husband really enjoyed our visit. Although small, there is lots to see in this beautiful building. Great fun for adults and children alike, you can dress up in period clothes and armour (great for some funny photos!). Staff were helpful and friendly. Some reviewers have complained about the entry price, but we thought it was acceptable. Others... More

This museum is well worth a visit. It has some lovely Tudor and Stuart panelled and furnished rooms as well as Victorian Kitchen, nursery and living rooms. There are a number of interesting paintings. The house is full of history.

Visiting Great Yarmouth for the day and as I like my history I thought I must visit here. Well wasn't I disappointed . I thought the Elizabethan houses would of been fitted out to the period of their time. Clearly not, hardly anything in the rooms to look at and not much to read either. Defiantly not worth what we...

We turned up half an hour before closing and managed to see everything so I wouldn't allow too much time to go around here. Free for National Trust members but other than that it would be expensive for what it is. Small shop and toilet - no cafe. Museum itself is interesting but more information cards would be good and...
