Photo of The David Butters Room

As you enter, this gallery presents you with a glass case containing the incredibly intricate and accurate scale model of Swaffham town as it was in the 1930’s. Wander through the past streets of Swaffham and marvel at the skills of Harry Carter who made the model.

On the walls of the room are some of the illustrations and entries from the diary of Mary Ann Jefferies, together with photographs, in a display of ‘Women in Swaffham’.

Imagine the past lives in Swaffham with the displays of medicine bottles, packaging and clothing items that have been collected and preserved.

"Brilliant little museum with friendly knowledgeable staff. Exhibition on Howard Carter who discovered Tutankhamen's tomb was particularly interesting and enjoyable." Read more reviews
