There are more than 50 museums in Suffolk. Each one is unique, and they are all packed with fascinating stories and objects. If you want to know more about the past and how it has affected the present, just come and take a closer look.
Suffolk’s many small museums are full of surprises. They are housed in some exciting places too. In castles and cottages; in moot halls and on wartime airfields; in a Victorian engineering works and at a railway station.
From prehistoric discoveries to amazing archaeological finds; from Saxon burials to fishing and farming in the age of steam; from the drowning of Medieval Dunwich to the development of Radar at Bawdsey - there’s something for visitors of all ages to find out about, see and do.
We’ve got buses, bones and lifeboats; medals, models and manuscripts; art, axes and aircraft; wool-work, witch-bottles and wooden toys. The majority of Suffolk’s smaller museums are run entirely by volunteers.
Opening hours vary and it is always advisable to check for individual museum's details when planning a visit.
