The Museum of the Broads
Museum of The Broads
As featured on Channel Four’s Great Canal Journeys!
Spend an enjoyable day at the only waterside Museum of Broadland life at the historic and picturesque Stalham Staithe. We are family and dog friendly, have an accessible site, with a small café and picnic area.
See our special exhibition commemorating the centenary of the end of the Great War, ‘Broadland During the First World War’ and learn how local people coped with war, the tales of the men who went to fight, the women who worked at home, and the first zeppelin air raid which took place over the Broads. Watch our special film, made with the help of local people and Stalham High School.
