The Conspiracy Room at the Museum.

Haddiscoe Hoard

The collection of over 300 coins was discovered in 2003 at Haddiscoe Island. It represents the largest hoard of the Civil War period found in Norfolk and one of the most significant finds of its type from the county. The coins span the reign of four monarchs, including Edward VI, Elizabeth I, James I and Charles I. It is believed that the hoard was buried in 1646-47 during the English Civil War.
This collection which was previously on display in the Conspiracy Room has now been removed and is in temporary store at Time & Tide Museum, Great Yarmouth. Visitors wishing to view the collection should telephone (01493) 743930 to make an appointment. It is hoped to put the collection back on display at Time & Tide Museum at some point in the future.

Our collection

Items of furniture in our dining room date from as early as the 1500s, and our art collection around the house is just a taster of the collection held by Norfolk Museum and Archeology Service.

For children

There are lots of fun things in our collection - children can enjoy dressing up in Victorian costumes or visit our toy room, plus we have lots of special events too.
