We are open with some small changes to ensure your safety. 

Our hours are now back to pre-covid hours(10-4 Mon to Friday; and 10-1 on Saturday). We are asking for your details to ensure we comply with government guidelines. We ask that all visitors to wear face coverings when inside the building for your safety and the safety of others. 

However, if you are still unsure of visiting in person, we have more information on this website for you to enjoy our Museum in the comfort of your home. 

While in lockdown we have been working at 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
