Enjoy this delightful museum which tells the story of West Norfolk. Step back in time as you walk into the world of Seahenge, the astonishing Bronze Age timber circle that forms the museum’s stunning centrepiece.

You can also browse around the local history gallery to marvel at the Sedgeford Hoard of Iceni gold coins hidden in a cow bone for nearly 2000 years, imagine being a pilgrim in the thriving medieval port of King’s Lynn or ride on a magnificent galloper in a Victorian fairground.

The museum has a changing exhibition programme and holiday activities, in addition to being an educational base for students.
