Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery
With a National Art Pass you get
Built by the Normans in the 11th century, Norwich Castle was designed to be a royal palace.
While it never served its original purpose, in the thousand years since its construction the castle has been used variously as a military fort, a county jail and, most recently, a museum. Today, Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery is home to collections of fine art, archaeology and natural history, as well as touring exhibitions from national galleries.
In 2015, the Museum & Art Gallery ran a highly successful Art Happens crowdfunding campaign to re-gild the frame of one of their rarest and most famous paintings, The Paston Treasure.
