Really enjoyed the visit, especially the clock display. Bury St Edmunds should be proud of this gem within the Town,

Really good experience. The exhibits were varied and interesting. My main impression was that it enhanced a visit to Bury St Edmunds and told the story of the town. Not too much that you lost interest, but enough to inform and keep your interest.

Very interesting museum in the centre of Bury St Edmunds. Easy to miss but well worth a visit and the modest entry fee. Free to Art Fund members. Includes lots of history and a very interesting collection of grandfather clocks.
