Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell

Bridewell Alley, NORWICH, NR2 1AQ

From the Medieval to the Modern day, the Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell tells the story of the city's industries and the people who have lived and worked here. From the textile trade which was at the heart of the city's wealth, to the production of shoes, chocolate and mustard, the story of how Norwich has adapted to changing fortunes, and coped with two World Wars, is told in ten galleries and over two floors. The galleries are packed with objects and displays, and plenty of chances to get hands-on. There are also audio diaries, archive films and board games you can play in a 1950s dining room.
