Our museums

    Time and Tide – award-winning town museum housed in beautifully-preserved herring curing works

    Elizabethan House Museum – grand Tudor house with a focus on Victorian home life

    The Tolhouse – atmospheric original building in which to explore crime and punishment

We are pleased to announce two exciting KS2 school events now on offer at Time & Tide

Roman Conquest: Boudicca's Revolt throws children into the heart of the drama as they help the Iceni tribe rise up against the oppressive Roman regime. This event went down a treat with teachers & pupils when piloted and is sure to inspire further learning back in the classroom.

Saxons vs Vikings
is a high intensity, immersive event which is guaranteed to enthral your pupils. Vikings have invaded East Anglia and pupils must help the Saxons advise King Alfred of Wessex what to do: invade or pay Danegeld? Pupils will get the opportunity to learn Viking warfare & fighting techniques, create Saxon jewellery and hear mystical tales of the Viking Gods.

The children found it much easier to focus and recall information after the 'hands on' experience. It really brought the topic to life.

I wouldn't change any of the visit - it's exactly what is needed. We've been 3 years now and thoroughly enjoy it.
