Interesting exhibits.

Interesting exhibits. Gives a good overview of different aspects of Norwich's history. Very quiet, one way route round and plenty of hand sanitizer following COVID regulations. Worth a visit.

No Joy

Looks delightful but it was totally closed. What a pity - maybe I shall be able to return in happier times.

14th C building covered in meticulously knapped flint
Sep 2020
Nowhere have I seen flint knapped like this - the outside wall is made of perfect squares and oblongs of flint. The Norwich Heritage Trails leaflet accurately describes this as "said to be the best example of flint building in Europe".

Lovely little museum summarising local social history very well.

I arrived at this museum an hour before closing and was gratified to discover the £6 entry fee was cut to £2 for the last hour! This museum covers the social and industrial history of Norwich over recent centuries.

A great little museum
Mar 2020
This museum contains a wealth of interesting exhibits and offers an insight into the history of the city, the industries that people worked in, and the lives that they led. The lady on the reception desk gave us a detailed and helpful explanation of the layout of the museum, the artefacts on display had clear and concise descriptions, and the interactive elements worked well. Definitely worth a visit.

A Fantastic Journey Through Norwich History
Mar 2019 • Solo
A fantastic journey through Norwich history. The rooms are carefully laid out by theme (e.g. manufacturing) and well presented. I would have given 5 stars but some of the rooms are poorly lit (to preserve the artefacts?). Great for kids as very interactive.

Thank you for your review, and we are glad you enjoyed your visit. You are quite right, levels are kept low in some areas to protect objects such as textiles from light damage. Where possible, we provide additional push button lighting. We hope to see you again soon.

Wonderful!
Feb 2020
Apart from an over sized noisy school group, very poorly controlled by too few staff, this was a great visit. Really interesting, lots to look at from norwich history. Felt i came out knowing more about the town. Really great!

Good history of Norwich

Enjoyed learning of the history of the city, told in an informative way with enough detail but not overwhelming.

Tour of the Undercroft
Jan 2020
A really excellent tour and talk, led by Bethan, who is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the City of Norwich. Book for the tour over the phone, and it is effectively free, as you only pay the Museum's entry charge.

Fascinating and fun!
