The doors at Cromer Museum have been thrown open for a new season - giving visitors the chance to explore the many fascinating people and events from the town’s heritage.

The museum had been planing on a shorter season this year - opening an April 1 - due to budget considerations.

But thanks to £4,000 grant from North Norfolk District Council, to be matched by funding from Cromer Town Council, the museum has been able to open as usual from the start of March.

Alistair Murphy, curator, said the museum’s team were looking forward to a busy season, which would see the attraction open seven days a week until October.

Mr Murphy said: “We’ve got a whole range of events - walks around the town: ghost walks, war walks and history walks, there’s also archeological walks and lots of events going on at the museum.

“We’ve also got, as always, the Olive Edis exhibition, which continues to draw lots of visitors across the country.”

The museum also hosts school visits, including those which give youngsters the chance to delve into the region’s pre-history as part of the Deep History Coast initiative.

The museum off Church Street is open 10am-4am Monday to Friday and midday to 4pm on weekends.
