Aldeburgh Museum is housed in the iconic Moot Hall, a superb 16th Century, Grade 1 listed timber-framed building that is also home to the Town Council.
The museum tells of Aldeburgh's rich and varied history through hands-on and digital displays. You can learn all about the beautiful Tudor building, local democracy, the fishing and shipbuilding industry, archaeological discoveries and the Anglo Saxons, the Victorian era, the Witches of Aldeburgh and much more.
The museum collection is in the first floor council chamber and the museum room on the ground floor. Entry to the museum is via the external staircase directly into the Council Chamber, which is still in use today by the Town Council.
Inside the museum there is a Discovery Trail for children and a museum shop. For the month of August there is a special offer: buy 2 booklets and get one free! Visit the website for FREE Activity childrens sheets and a Historic Walk suggestion.
From 1st August the museum will be open every afternoon between 1 - 4 pm. Measures have been put in place to keep you, the staff and volunteers as safe as possible.
