Museum From Home
The buildings might be closed, but we’re doing what we can to bring the museum to you!
Each week, our team will be sharing a variety of activities, inspired by the collections, to help educate and entertain.

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.
