Tripadvisor feedback on our free days

Our free days are proving very popular and this review gets our second week off to a great start.

“Been meaning to pop into the Bridewell Alley Museum (Norwich Museum) for ages now. Finally grabbed the opportunity when the “Freemen of Norwich” made the visits free for a limited time. Bonus today with an unexpected escorted guide and talk on the Bridewell undercroft was also on the agenda. Not normally open to the public, our guide enthused about the underground vaults and rooms and their history and really interacted with the small group of visitors… sooo.. interesting. Time to meander through the building again and soak in the atmosphere of such an old and intriguing building. Able to sit on a small row of old cinema seats and watch a few video samples of different periods from the last 100+years or so .. amazing what Norwich has been through. I guess what really helped my visit experience was the friendly, helpful and genuine interest by the museum staff, who actively engaged with the visitors. The quality of the exhibits and the attention to detail with their visual merchandising throughout sold it for me too tho.. each room tells its own story, using a variety of techniques to capture the visitors imagination. All in all, a most welcome and appreciated asset to the city of Norwich. If you haven’t visited, do it.. Small, discreet and a fascinating insight to local history..”
