Southwold’s tiny cottage museum houses an astonishing collection of objects spanning millennia of local history from fossil remains through to sea battles, the development of industries and artistic life, the rise and fall of the railway, the famous lighthouse, the ever-changing coastline and to Southwold’s 20th century transformation from fishing community to seaside resort.
Following a major redesign the museum is now definitely a 21st Century attraction with interactive exhibits and much enhanced display space. Yet it retains the intimacy which has always constituted its key appeal.
