One of the city's most famous landmarks, Norwich Castle was built by the Normans as a royal palace over 900 years ago. Now a museum and art gallery, it is packed with treasures to inspire and intrigue visitors of all ages.
From Autumn 2019 to Spring 2021 building work will take place to transform the Castle Keep back to its original lay-out as a Norman royal palace. For the duration of the work the rest of the Castle site will remain open, and new activities and displays will give visitors the chance to find out more about the work as it unfolds. Visitors are encouraged to see www.museums.norfolk.gov.uk/norwich-castle for information on the work and how it may affect their visit.
There are galleries devoted to Boudicca, Queen of the Iceni, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. Step even further back in time to experience the atmosphere of an Egyptian tomb with its ancient mummies.
Go wild in the Natural History galleries and discover creatures from all over the world. Learn about Victorian collectors, taxidermy, geology, fossils, birds, botany and butterflies.
In the Art Galleries, there are superb displays of fine and decorative arts, including the best collections anywhere of paintings by the Norwich School of Artists, Lowestoft Porcelain and ceramic teapots. A delightful Decorative Arts Gallery traces 600 years of style and design. Changing exhibitions bring world class art into the heart of Norwich.
