Norfolk Museums Service's stored collections

norfolk collections centre

The Norfolk Collections Centre is the Norfolk Museums Service's open access storage facility. With over 3m objects in our collections, we need somewhere big enough to store all those not currently on display.

The objects held by Norfolk Museums Service primarily focus on Norfolk including its history, culture, and environment. We also have some wonderful collections that are a window on the world.

Some of the 'star' objects in the Norfolk Collections Centre include:

  • The West Runton mammoth
  • The famous Norwich snap dragons
  • A mustard stamper used to crush mustard seeds at the Colman's factory in the 19th century

Book a behind the scenes tour

These are currently unavailable due to a re-development of our storage spaces. The expectation is that we can resume tours in Autumn 2024.
