Norwich Castle Museum
and Art Gallery

 

One of the city’s most famous landmarks, Norwich Castle was built by the Normans as a Royal Palace 900 years ago. Now a museum and art gallery, it is home to some of the most outstanding collections of fine art, archaeology and natural history.

Norwich Castle is packed with treasures to inspire and intrigue visitors of all ages. In the magnificent Norman keep, models, computers, sound and video bring history vividly to life.

Find out about East Anglia’s very own Queen Boudica, admire breathtaking displays of Iceni gold and ride on a re-creation of an Iceni warrior’s chariot.

Visit the Anglo-Saxon and Viking Gallery to find out what life was like in East Anglia after the Romans left.

Explore a remarkable reconstruction of an Anglo-Saxon grave site, see wonderful Viking treasures – all of which were found locally – and enjoy hands on displays for all the family.

Step even further back in time and experience the atmosphere of an Egyptian tomb with its ancient mummies.

Admire the Norwich Civic Regalia and see the best collections anywhere of the Norwich School of Artists and Lowestoft Porcelain.

Immerse yourself in the decorative arts in two brand new galleries. Trace 600 years of style and design in The Arts of Living Gallery. Then view objects brought back from countries such as Africa and India in Treasure, Trade and the Exotic.

Marvel at the world’s largest collection of ceramic teapots and see superb displays of modern art, including special touring exhibitions.
