Heritage Open Days - Ipswich Museum

Enjoy a fun-filled day out and make lasting memories at Ipswich Museum as part of Heritage Open Days. Come and meet animals from around the world in the Victorian Natural History Gallery, travel the globe, or follow The Ipswich Story.

Step back in time to when Ipswich was a vast area of grassland and our ancestors used stone tools. Continue on and discover how we learned how to use bronze and iron and became a medieval town. Then explore Cardinal Wolsey’s birthplace and see how it survived through civil war, world wars and into a modern era.

The Museum is home to a wide range of collections, from natural science to Egyptology, social history to world cultures. Highlights include:

  • The Ogilvie Bird collection
  • Rendlesham archaeology collections
  • Death mask of Titos Flavious Demetrios
