The museum is absolutely charming. As an early guide to Norfolk described it: “Nature could hardly stage a more delightful scene. Its church is a jewel set in a garden on the hill, looking over the wooded valley where the River Glaven flows to the sea. Below it is a rare little museum for all who love beautiful things…” You can also see the church St Martin’s on the hill above the museum that chimes the hour and also rings out a hymn or Christmas carol.
