Since 1983, Mildenhall & District Museum has been devoted to preserving artefacts from the district, which is both Fen and Breckland.
Inside, discover the history of Mildenhall, its treasures and people told through wonderful displays in the newly developed galleries. From the pre-history room with flints and fossils with examples you can touch, to the 1950s community room, Mildenhall Museum has something for everyone. You can see the Lakenheath Warrior, his horse and his artefacts from the grave; and find out about the key role Mildenhall’s air base played on the Second World War.
You can also view replicas of the famous Mildenhall Treasure. The treasure comprises over thirty items of silver tableware dating from Roman Britain, including platters, spoons, goblets and bowls, most of it richly decorated. Because of its immense value, the Mildenhall Treasure is housed in the British Museum, but the museum’s replicas give an idea of the scope and splendour of this magnificent collection
