Museums and Galleries

Norfolk Museums Service (NMS) was established in 1974 when the County and District Councils in Norfolk agreed to delegate their museum powers to a Joint Committee to manage museums through a countywide Museums Service. There are a variety of events and activities throughout the year in all museums across Breckland and Norfolk, especially in the school holidays.
