Museum of East Anglian Life Museums
Come in and explore the old East Anglia, from Suffolk Punch horses and rare breeds of pigs, sheep and goats, to displays of farming, craft workshops and industry, including the story of Ransomes to a Gypsy and Travellers exhibition with traditional caravans.
Arrive when the Smithy or any of our huge engines are at work and you could easily think you are in the industrial heart of England. East Anglian firms such as Garretts, Burrells, Boby, Smyth and Fison are represented in evocative displays. These firms made a wide range of products to support agriculture; including agricultural machinery, malting equipment, bricks and fertiliser. Burrells and Garretts are so important they have their own museums; visit Thetford's Burrell Museum or Leiston Long Shop Museum to discover even more about their inspiring stories.
A special highlight of our museum is the impressive 210 year history of Ransomes, Sims and Jeffries Engineering Company. The New William Bone Building sets out the story of this world-class leader and displays its varied production, from early lawnmowers to massive steam engines. There is also a special children's quiz to ensure there is something for all ages to enjoy.
Sunday 20th March - Monday 31st October Monday Saturday 10:00 17:00; Sunday 11:00 17:00.
