The Museum has four buildings: the Barton Building, the Surlingham Building, Wroxham Building and the Oulton Boat Shed. Outside in Friends’ Way are more Broads boats. Our steam launch, Falcon, and our electric boat, Marsh Harrier, are moored on our quayside.

Gift Shop & Refreshments

Our shop stocks souvenirs, Broads books and light refreshments. Entry is free to the shop. 


Parking is at Richardson’s Boatyard. The museum is a short 100m walk down the road. Disabled parking is available outside the Museum.


By boat: visitor moorings at the Museum and Richardson’s Boatyard. Overnight moorings at Stalham Staithe. Please ask at Museum Reception.


We have full access, either level or ramped, to all the buildings for wheelchairs. There is a disabled access toilet with a baby changing area.

A magnifier is available for the visually impaired, and our audio guides are a great way to enhance your visit.

Our Reception Volunteers will be pleased to assist you – just ask!

Unfortunately, Falcon is not fully accessible, as there are steps down from the quay into the boat.

Picnic Area
