Visiting the Museum

We look forward to welcoming you to our unique and tranquil riverside setting. Our story takes you from Roman times through medival peat digging to the holiday makers, sailors and environmentalists of today. Discover the boats of the Broads and take a trip on the river. 


Opening Times & Prices

The Museum re-opens in March 2022.

Bring the Kids

Discover the story of the Broads, its people, its wildlife, its landscape and its boats. We can’t offer some hands on activities at the moment , but by using your smart phone, and by taking our trail sheets, you can still enjoy many of the Broadland stories.
