We are Open

The usual winter closure has reaped benefits with a large project to refurbish the Carter Gallery to celebrate the Centenary of Howard Carter finding the tomb of Tutankhamun. 


This is, hopefully, a once in a lifetime period which we and our children may never forget but may want to look back and share memories with our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. To see the memories collected so far click HERE. We are still collecting memories, so do send your memories to us.


While in lockdown we wanted you to still enjoy our lovely Museum and the history of Swaffham via this website. We developed 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
