Southwold Museum

Recently awarded the title of 'Suffolk Museum of the Year', Southwold's unique cottage museum is dedicated to the local and natural history of this corner of Suffolk. Owned and managed by the Southwold Museum & Historical Society (Registered Charity No 1159790), this tiny building houses an astonishing collection of objects and displays presented with a focus on families.

The whole span of history is here, from fossil remains through the Viking occupation, sea battles, the development of the town's architecture, its industries and artistic life, the rise and fall of its railway, its famous land-locked lighthouse, its ever-changing coastline... to the 20th century transformation of this busy fishing community into a prosperous seaside resort.

Following a recent major refit funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and with the generous support of the Southwold Trust and the Adnams Charity, you will find many fascinating new displays. We confidently believe that ours is now one of the most exciting small museums in the country.

Southwold Museum will be reopening for the 2017 season on April 1st. Open from 2pm to 4pm. Admission free but donations are very gratefully received.
