Elizabethan House Museum

Built around 1596, the Elizabethan House Museum is a fantastic museum to visit

This National Trust property is managed by the Norfolk Museums Service and is a hidden gem on South Quay. It is a ‘hands on’ museum which offers visitors a chance to step back in time, with its displays of 16th-century domestic history.

You can wander through period rooms upstairs this Tudor merchant’s house, and experience Victorian life downstairs in its kitchen and scullery. The house has strong connections with Oliver Cromwell and gives you the chance to decide for yourself whether the plot to execute Charles I was hatched in the ‘conspiracy room’.
