Very interesting place to learn about local history of the Kings Lynn and West Norfolk area. I often work in Lynn as a coach driver and have hours to kill during the day. Lynn museum has free entry and was a great way to spend an hour or so,

I travelled 50 miles to see the Seahenge exhibition and I was left distinctly underwhelmed. I was really interested in the subject matter but the constrained exhibition left me feeling flat. There was little about the story about how the Seahenge hit the national headlines and a dateline about when it was discovered and the events leading up to it ending up in King's Lynn museum. It was crying out for a couple of videos of writer and archaeologist Francis Pryor to bring the whole thing alive. The funniest item in the small museum was a golden Roman phallus - you could even but your own version in the shop for £125 (but strangely there were no Seahenge postcards). The local history was also intriguing, especially the life of local explorer and adventurer Thomas Baines. His main claim to fame seemed to be exploring with Dr Livingstone until he got accused of theft. Well worth an hour's visit, and we even got in for free.

Loved the little museum and especially the exhibition on Sea Henge. What a shame the shop was closed on a Saturday ...for 2 women to chose this day to sort it out.I had to plead with them to buy a postcard.Really...you are missing a trick to make some much needed revenue.

I went to this museum to see the Sea Henge - which I duly did - but was completely entranced by the other exhibits. There is something for everyone. Interested in the bronze age? There's a whole case of exhibits. Medieval more your thing: there's one of those too - with exquisite ivory carvings. There is truly something for everyone here - and the staff are more than helpful. There's also no charge for entry during the winter! What's not to like?
