Norwich Freemen Fortnight

From Tuesday 30th July 2019 to Saturday 10th August 2019

Free admission for all during the fortnight 31st July – 11th August at The Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell and Strangers' Hall Norwich.

It's 60 years since Norwich twinned with Rouen in Northern France. To celebrate, our summer exhibition looks back at Norwich in 1959.

The Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell tells the stories of the city from Medieval to modern day, through the eyes of the people who worked in the trades and industries which put the city on the map.

Strangers’ Hall is a beautiful medieval merchant’s house and period house museum, with over 15 room displays showing how home life evolved from Tudor to Victorian times. You can wander through a maze of rooms with steps and staircases, finding out how some of Norwich’s leading citizens lived and worked.

There is no need to book, simply turn up on the day for the free entry this summer and step back in time to enjoy two of Norwich’s treasured collections. This is funded by the Freemen of Norwich Charity who would like to encourage everyone to take a moment to see what the museums have to offer. 

Museum of Norwich at The Bridewell - Tuesday-Saturday 10am-4.30pm

Stranger’s Hall - Wednesday-Friday (10am-4pm) and Sundays (1pm-4:30pm)
