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...

I think we spent about 15-20 minutes here, there isn't an awfully lot to see. Perhaps children would get more out of it because there are dress up clothes and educational aspects. It was interesting just a bit small.

What an interesting little museum, great ceilings and a historical place of interest! There were also costumes for dressing up if you had kids with you [ or are young at heart!]

This museum is just part of the Historic Gt Yarmouth. I wasnt aware that there was an Historic part as the Town Hall dont see fit to sing this part of town from the rooftops. The entrance is a very unpreposossing black painted door on the side of the building. You step down into the reception and shop. This museum... More

On the small side for a national trust property, we enjoyed it very much. Lots of clothes/hats/Armour to dress up in for photos. Everything labelled, which made a nice change. A very interesting period house ( don't forget to LOOK UP, the ceilings are interesting too). Recommended for and hour of your time.
