Halesworth and District Museum

Halesworth and District Museum is a small volunteer run museum at the towns railway station. Our aim is to preserve the archaeology, history and artefacts of Halesworth and the rural area which it serves.

It's not a railway museum but we do have information on the station, staff and history of the East Suffolk Line and the narrow guage Southwold railway. Next to the station is the restored, unique, movable platform - installed in 1888 and used until the late 1960's.
