The museum was founded in 1844 by members of the Lynn Conversazione and Society of Arts who wanted ‘the establishment of an institution so well calculated to improve the taste of the inhabitants of the town and neighbourhood, and particularly the rising generation; as well as to afford a source of continued amusement and gratification to those persons who had already paid attention to scientific pursuits’. as part of the museum it tells the story of West Norfolk which includes artefacts on; Bronze Age timber circle ( which is the main attraction of the museum) where you will learn about the people who crafted the timbers and made the bronze axes as well as gold coins in a cow bone dating all the way back to the roman age.
