Norwich and District 

Museum and Archives

Norwich Museum will be reopened to the public at limited capacity from February 1st, 2022.

Visitors will be required to book visits in advance by contacting the Museum, and all visitors will be required to wear masks inside the building. As the snow makes many of our outbuildings inaccessible, tours will be limited to the Quaker Meeting House and Lavern Irving Gallery at this time. The Archives remains closed for the winter, however research enquires can be made to the Archives email address.


The Archives is closed for winter break Dec 10 to Mar 16. No volunteers will be available to staff the Reading Room or research queries.

When open, general Covid safety concerns are applied.  Because of social distancing we can only accommodate 2 researchers at a time so "drop in" guests may be turned away. Social distancing, masks and information for contact tracing will be in effect. Call or email to set up your time. The archives has volunteers there only on Thursday so planning ahead is necessary. After March 16, Archives open Thursday 10-4 only by appointment.
