Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell

Norwich, United Kingdom

From the textile trade which was at the heart of the city’s wealth, to the production of shoes, chocolate and mustard, the story of how Norwich constantly adapted to changing fortunes, and coped with two World Wars is told in ten galleries over two floors. A major refurbishment project completed in 2012 saw the installation of lifts, making the museum accessible to all.

The galleries are packed with fascinating objects and engaging displays, with plenty of chances to get hands-on. Listen to audio diaries, watch an archive film in a recreated cinema, or play board games in a retro 1950s living room.

Whether you are visiting for the day and want to an insight into the history of the city, or you have lived here all your life, the Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell, at the heart of the Norwich Lanes is a must-see.
