The Museum of the Broads


Bringing the Stories of the Broads Alive!

Discover the people, landscape and wildlife of the Broads.  Take a boat trip to really experience what makes the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads so special.

We are now open on Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and holiday Mondays.  Check out our Visit page for more information and our Events page to see what’s on.

Help us to take our Museum into the future

Our collection of items from the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads is unique and our vision is to bring the stories of the Broads alive.

We know times are hard.  We have done our best to keep our ticket prices low and the Museum entry ticket is valid for one year. 

Unlike many museums in Norfolk, we do not receive funding from government or from a local authority.  We are an independent charitable trust reliant on our fabulous band of volunteers to stay open.

If you are able to give a donation to help the Museum to continue its work, please click the button below.  We are very grateful for all support.  Thank you.

‘Philippa Miller – Broadland’s Artist’

Philippa Ruth (Pippa) Miller painted, filmed, and recorded the Broads for many decades. Born to a boat building family in Oulton Broad in 1905, she loved everything about Broadland.  Although Miller moved to Norwich in 1930 to teach art, her inspiration was always in the open waterways of the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads.
