Visiting Ipswich Museum
From 27th January 2022, face coverings are no longer compulsory. For the safety and comfort of visitors and staff however, we recommend wearing one whilst inside our museums, 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.
