Lynn Museum

Come and visit the award-winning Lynn Museum, West Norfolk’s greatest treasure!

Enjoy this delightful museum which tells the story of West Norfolk. Step back in time as you walk into a life size replica of Seahenge. This astonishing Bronze Age timber circle is the museum’s stunning centrepiece. Learn about the people who meticulously crafted the timbers and study the marks left by their bronze axes.

Then discover the timbers as they were found on the beach and find out how this ancient wooden structure amazingly survived for 4,000 years.

Browse around the ‘West Norfolk Story’. Marvel at the Sedgeford Hoard of Iceni gold coins hidden in a cow bone for nearly 2000 years. Imagine being a pilgrim in the thriving medieval port of King’s Lynn or riding on the magnificent gallopers in a Victorian fairground.

Examine the skeleton of an Anglo Saxon warrior and Egyptian Shabti figures. Learn how early people have helped us to write history from their graves.
