With 17 historic buildings set in 75 acres of beautiful countryside, the Museum of East Anglian Life is the largest independent museum in Suffolk.
The museum is an educational charity supporting the community. It cares for over 40,000 objects – once the everyday items of East Anglian life. The collection has a particular focus on the production of food and social history relating to it, reflective of the region’s strong agricultural character.
Explore nearly 3km of woodland and riverside nature trails and 15 splendidly restored historic buildings, including the recently restored Abbot’s Hall. You can learn about fascinating East Anglian lives, crafts and culture, on a day out for all the family to enjoy.
The museum is also creating a new Heritage Farm at the heart of the site to be a centre for conservation and education about our rural heritage, our food, and where it comes from.
