Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery - Free Entry - 19th - 27th March 2022

19–27 March 2022

Come visit Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery for free in partnership with the National Lottery. The Castle site comprises the 900-year-old Castle (currently closed for redevelopment, see below) and a large gallery complex converted which remains open. It houses internationally important collections in archaeology, natural history, regimental history, and fine, decorative and contemporary art.

Construction work has begun on the Norwich Castle: Royal Palace Reborn project to transform the medieval Castle. Because of the building work and health and safety measures to protect visitors and staff, some areas of the Castle site are not open.

There are still plenty of fantastic treasures for you to explore including changing exhibitions and displays:

Art Galleries including works by the Norwich School of Artists.

The Boudica Gallery is open but some displays have been cleared and the objects have been put into storage while building works are happening.
