Quaint little museum but an interesting piece of local history. Different rooms show the house during different historical periods and there's a bit of intrigue about Cromwell and the plot to execute King Charles I. Not too bad a price but look out for discounts...More

Note this was a family visit (adult children not teens, but the app didn't give right option). An interesting museum, with an good information video. It is well worth escaping the seafront for quality visits to the museums in Great Yarmouth.

A very interesting and well presented museum, volunteers were so friendly, interesting and helpful. My two boys 4 and 6 found it very interesting and we were there much longer than we thought! Definitely recommend for a rainy day.
