From Medieval to modern day, the Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell tells the story of the city's industries and the people who lived and worked here.

From the textile trade which was at the heart of the city's wealth, to the production of shoes, chocolate and mustard, the story of how Norwich constantly adapted to changing fortunes, and coped with two World Wars is told in ten galleries over two floors. A major refurbishment project completed in 2012 saw the installation of lifts, making the museum accessible to all.

The galleries are packed with fascinating objects and engaging displays, with plenty of chances to get hands-on. Listen to audio diaries, watch an archive film in a recreated cinema, or play board games in a retro 1950s living room.
