Located in the Moot Hall, a superb 16th century, Grade 1 listed, timber-framed building, the museum tells the fascinating history of this seaside town. Entrance is via the 1st Floor Council Chamber then downstairs to discover about our rich heritage from the the Anglo-Saxons at Barbers Point, the Romans, the ship building years, the Victorian resort, the impact of the sea, well-known Aldeburgh folk and much more. Entrance Fee payable.
Please note that the museum is not suitable for people with walking difficulties or wheelchairs as there are stairs, however we are working on this to provide a digital tour. No Dogs Allowed. The building is also an office and the meeting place of Aldeburgh Town Council.
Suitable for families and people of all ages, we have a Discovery Trail for children, the smugglers walk guide, a small shop, friendly and knowledgeable volunteers and staff.
