Many of the wonderful treasures on display in the Norwich Museums have been purchased by the Friends, whose loyalty and commitment has also helped to secure major funding from national organisations like the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Friends get involved in many aspects of museum life. They have created a garden at Strangers' Hall, provided facilities for disabled people and equipment for education, conservation and display.
