About the Museum

We are in the heart of rural Suffolk, recording and preserving the history of Saxmundham, Kelsale-cum-Carlton and Benhall.

The Museum was opened in 2004 by special guest Peter Purves.

This year we have launched a new Reference and Local History Room.

Strada Cars

Launched at the 1974 Car Show, the company folded in 1975 but what's the story behind Saxmundham's very own sports car manufacturer?

Come and find out, we have a new display for 2018 in the Green Room.

Jenny Toombs

Jennifer (Jenny) Toombs was an internationally acclaimed artist, famous for her hand-drawn stamps and first-day covers which were issued in over 50 countries.

She lived in Benhall for many years but suddenly and peacefully passed away at home on April 2, 2018.

We have created a tribute to this muched loved and missed lady.

Thank you if you came to see us in 2018

The Museum is now closed for the Winter.
Thank you to everyone who came to visit us during the 2018 season.
The Museum will reopen for the 2019 season in April.
