Supporting our past for the future

Heritage in Norfolk

Norfolk is a county with a rich and diverse heritage. You can find out about it through the collections and knowledge found in museums, archives, heritage sites and history groups. 

Across Norfolk there are museums telling the story of a particular town or place, others born out of individual passions and personal collections, those that tell the story of long lost industries or historical figures. There are also historic sites, stately homes and buildings with a unique sense of place, and numerous history groups, archaeological groups and archives that preserve our past.

The organisations listed on this site are all members of Heritage Network Norfolk. we do not manage any of our member organisations. if you wish to contact a particular organisation you can find their contact details on their dedicated page in the Our Members section.

About Us

We are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation that supports and represents museums and associated heritage/cultural organisations in Norfolk.

In March 2019 we changed our name from Museums Norfolk to Heritage Network Norfolk so that we can widen our remit and work on behalf of the wider heritage sector in the county.  We run networking and training events for members, act as a champion for members and are a unified voice for the sector.

We seek to inspire and enable excellence in museums and heritage organisations so that they are able to provide the best possible cultural, educational and enriching experiences for the public, safeguard and share our heritage and culture, and maintain their role as experts/specialists in their area of knowledge.
