The Norfolk Collections Centre is our open access storage facility. With over 3 million objects is our overall collection we need somewhere big enough to store all those not currently on display.

Among our ‘star’ objects in store are the West Runton Mammoth, the famous Norwich Snap Dragons and a Mustard Stamper used to crush mustard seeds at the Colman’s factory in the 19th century.
