The Museum of the Broads has reopened for the 2023 season and has a special family offer.

We can’t wait to welcome visitors again, and all children aged 12 and under will be able to visit for free.

And teenagers aged from 13 to 18 will pay only £3.

This is a new offer from the museum and is our way of recognising the pressure families are under at the moment and helping them to have a great day out.

We will run this offer for the whole season, to the end of October.

In addition, all tickets are valid for one year  – you have to pay only once and you can visit as many times as you like in the next 12 months!

Thanks to the Red House Youth Trust for supporting us in this initiative.

As well as new displays showing a marshman’s cottage and a riverside bungalow, there are new family activities – and our old favourites (our trip boats) will be running again as well.

We are also introducing a new combined museum and boat ticket when booked in advance online.

The Museum of the Broads opened in 1996 and has been at the historic Stalham Staithe since 2000.

Opening from Easter until the end of October and staffed mainly by volunteers, with a paid curator and administrator, it welcomes around 7,000 visitors each year.

It aims to bring the stories of the Broads alive through interesting and engaging experiences, including offering river trips on a Victorian steamboat and an accessible Edwardian-style electric boat.

Families and dogs are very welcome.
