Voices from the Workhouse
There are big changes happening at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse.
“Voices from the Workhouse” is a three-year Heritage Lottery Fund project which will transform the museum displays telling the real stories of the people who lived and worked in the workhouse.
Using original accounts, amazing collections and the beautiful building, this project will explore these stories and find out why they are still important today. For the first time it will also examine life at Gressenhall in the 20th century when it became an old people’s home.
For all the latest news and project updates, please visit the Voices from the Workhouse webpage.

…I would say that Norfolk Museums Service is one of the best county museum services in the country and it’s doing a great service to the people and visitors of Norfolk.
I am absolutely thrilled. I could never in a thousand years imagine that I could be fortunate enough to find a fossil and have it identified.
