The Bungay Museum is now open again after a massive refurbishment. If you think you knew all that the museum had to offer – think again! The refurbished museum is more open and there is room to make your way easily around the exhibits, now arranged in chronological order with geological finds – including a mammoth’s tooth! – to our more recent history, including the sole survivor of the old Corn Cross in the shape of one of its wooden pillars:
The preview evening saw many invited guests dropping in for a glass of wine and a chat with the Museum’s Curator, Lorna Richardson.
Peter Aldous, MP and Town Reeve Olly Barnes were among the guests:
The Museum is well worth a visit – especially if you think you have unearthed a stone-age flint in your garden – you can find many examples of such finds in the museum!
The Museum, located in the Town Hall in Bridge Street, is open Saturdays, Sundays and most Bank Holidays from 10am – 3pm.
