The Changing Museum
Room 2 features a changing selection of objects from the Museum collection. These objects have been displayed here temporarily while we make improvements to our permanent galleries.
Currently, the gallery includes objects from the Pacific and Andes and material from the Palaeolithic collections, as well as other temporary displays.
Admission free, open late Fridays
Objects on display include famous finds from the ship-burial at Sutton Hoo, and artefacts dating from the end of the Roman Empire to the Norman Conquest in England.
