Thetford’s Ancient House has recently benefitted from a £1.6 million renovation, which has gone towards conserving the Grade I listed Tudor merchant’s house and creating up-to-date displays.
The atmospheric crooked house tells the remarkable story of Thetford and the Brecks. Discover rich collections alongside audio guides, films and animations.
Meet local people from Thetford’s past, from the revolutionary philosopher Thomas Paine to the Sikh hero Maharajah Duleep Singh and from rabbit warreners to railway workers.
Take time out in the re-planted garden and don’t miss the brand new museum shop in its oak pavilion. Allow about an hour and a half for a visit.
