Explore Ipswich's past with stories that will inspire you.

This fascinating, unusual museum gives visitors the opportunity to meet the famous giant woolly mammoth, the elegant towering giraffe and other weird and wonderful natural world curiosities. Go on a journey through Suffolk's past from the Iron Age to the Romans and Saxons. Discover more about past civilisations across the globe, and take a trip down the Nile in the Egyptian Gallery.

Ipswich Museum is currently undergoing a redevelopment and will reopen in 2025, with redisplayed galleries, new visitor facilities and a vibrant events programme.
