The Museum of the Broads
The waterside museum of the Broads is located in the picturesque, Stalham Staithe in a unique riverside setting. The museum is a registered charitable trust which is staffed by 80 volunteers who aim to bring the story of the broads alive.
Here at the museum we are very family friendly, with lots of activities for children as well as adults. Our on site facilities include a shop where you can buy memorable souvenirs and a cafe providing light refreshments. However if you would prefer to bring your own picnic to enjoy by the river please feel free. Well behaved dogs on leads are also welcome.
Our story takes you through Roman times, to medieval times, to holiday makers sailors and environmentalists of today. Our museum collection includes artefacts and objects that show how people exploited the land and waterways for transport, leisure and food. Our purpose of the museum is to preserve and record the History of the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads and many of our items here at the museum are unique including our boats. This is an ideal family day out, as well as a top tourist attraction.
