Wymondham Heritage Museum
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
There are exhibitions of daily life over the centuries, and a special display on Wymondham's most famous native, Robert Kett, who launched an unsuccessful rebellion in 1549 and was eventually hung from the tower of Wymondham Abbey.
Learn how the Bridewell prison became a model copied by gaols across Britain and the U.S., and learn about the devastating Wymondham fire of 1615 which destroyed over half of the town.
There are further exhibits on the history of the Norfolk Home Guard and Wymondham's Girl Guides.
