Enjoy this delightful museum housed in a former Union Baptist Chapel and schoolroom. Step back in time as you walk into a life-size replica of Seahenge, a Bronze Age timber circle. Discover timbers as they were found on the beach and find out how these ancient wooden structures survived for 4,000 years. You will also learn interesting stories about the people who crafted timbers and see the marks left by their bronze axes.
Browse around the ‘West Norfolk Story’ and then marvel at the Sedgeford hoard of Iceni gold coins, which were hidden in a cow bone for nearly 2,000 years.
Examine the skeleton of an Anglo Saxon warrior and see Egyptian Shabti figures. You can also learn how people of a distant past have helped us to write history from their graves.
