We are open!

We are fully open and following government Covid-19 guidelines . See Opening Times and charges for more information.


With the approval of the Heritage Lottery Fund, we have been able to convert our Wartime Remembrance Trail into a digital record of last and this year - the Covid era.

This is a once in a lifetime period which we and our children may never forget but will want to look back on and share memories of with our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. For more information go to our 'Conflict and Consequences Gallery' 

We are asking you to send us, in whatever format (digital or paper) your experiences of the last year and do Include photographs.

Just Tell Us! or if pen and paper suit you better, then post it to us at Swaffham Museum. 


While in lockdown we have been working on helping visitors see a little more of our lovely Museum and the history of Swaffham via this website. We have exciting Video presentations for you:

The first is a story that you can read to your children or grandchildren. On our stairway is a stained glass window featuring the Pedlar of Swaffham. And you may have seen him on the Swaffham town sign. Click on the video below and learn all about him. 

And on our Virtual Museum page we have:

  1. Photographs of Swaffham from the ground. The Rotary Capture Swaffham 2019 Competition entries 
  2. A Lockdown Quiz of Swaffham Town
  3. A Virtual visit of the Ben Emmerson Gallery
  4. Another Quiz with aerial images of Swaffham and surrounding villages
