The Museum of the Broads is a fascinating collection of vintage boating related items and thoughtful exhibits on the area's social and economic relationship with it's waterways.

There's a rich history associated with the region and plenty of educational scope in the presentations, with computer displays and an audio tour available. There are scattered special events and workshops throughout the year ranging from art and craft classes to short term seasonal exhibitions.

Great efforts are made here to engage and welcome children, with them offering Kiddie Quizzes, a Wildlife Trail, well equipped lender Explorer Packs, Teddy Bear Wingmen to accompany you, Knot Tying lessons and opportunities to get arty, dress up, play on play boats and follow the cute and mysterious duckling trail!

Plus take a 50 minute trip on their Victorian steam launch around the area, with life jackets provided and friendly informed commentary where appropriate.

A picnic area and cafe help round off the facilities, with everything either ramped or accessible so push chairs and wheelchairs are totally welcome.

It may be worth checking out Museum of the Broads's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.

We do strongly suggest you contact Museum of the Broads before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
