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.

Although the Collections Centre has to function as a working museum store we set aside a number of days each year to offer the public access behind the scenes to explore our stored collections.
Here are our opening times for the 2019 season (entry to the Collections Centre is free of charge to Gressenhall visitors):
Half-Term: February 19th – 21st
Heritage Open Day: September 8th (Behind the scenes tours)
Half-Term: October 22nd – 24th
We are also open for West Runton Mammoth tours which are delivered by our Natural History Curator, Dr David Waterhouse. Tickets for West Runton Mammoth tours are available from Art Tickets
