Brought a youth group to the museum. Everyone was really helpful. Group had a quiz which got them looking around the whole museum. They also loved going on and exploring the old vehicles. Highly recommend!!!!

Interesting for young and old alike. A lot of Ipswich's history hidden in here and plenty of vehicles to look at. The staff are all interested and willing to chat and give more information.
