Visiting Ipswich Museum
For the continued safety and comfort of our visitors and staff we request the wearing of face coverings whilst visiting, unless you are exempt.
Please respect others’ personal space whilst visiting our sites, and be mindful when in ‘tighter’ spaces.
Please be mindful that our interactives are for the enjoyment of everyone, so use hand sanitiser before and after use.
Enjoy a fun-filled day out and make lasting memories with us at Ipswich Museum. Come and meet animals from around the world in the Victorian Natural History Gallery, from gorillas to lions and even a rare sub-species of giraffe.
Why not travel the globe, step back 70 million years in the Geology Gallery or follow The Ipswich Story to see how the area has changed since the Stone Age.
