Dunwich Museum tells the story of the settlement from Roman times through its centuries of prosperity and growth to its time as a major port in medieval England. The museum tells the dramatic tale of the C13th storm that blocked the harbour entrance and the inexorable erosion that reduced Dunwich to the to tiny village of today. On the first floor there are displays about more recent social history, the wildlife of the area, and a feature about smuggling.
The model of medieval Dunwich, one of the largest towns in 13th century England; the dramatic film sequence and the animated smuggler.
