Discover our museums from home
All of our museums are temporarily closing from 5 November in line with the latest Government announcement. Here are some ways you can experience our museums from home.
Use our digital resources
Although we’re not currently able to welcome school groups to our museums, there are lots of resources in our Learning section. Keep the family busy with free digital resources aimed at children age 3-16. You’ll find a virtual tour and trails, Josephus Wickus’ Roman keep-fit video, films about fire, ancient Egyptians and more.
Our Time and Tide museum at home combines creative activities with educational resources including an A-Z of objects at the museum.
Discover our collections online
On Google Arts & Culture, you can explore the Museum of Norwich and the Lynn Museum. Take virtual tours and see their collections including how shoes have changed over time and Norwich at work. Share your findings on social media using #VisitFromHome.
Explore our YouTube channel
Norfolk Museums YouTube channel has educational videos, sewing and embroidery lessons, a lockdown living room escape challenge, make it Monday challenges and the adventures of our King Kipper and Snappy the dragon characters for under 5s.
