Samson's Homecoming


After painstaking conservation work, and a successful Art Happens campaign last year, the statue of Samson will go on display at the Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell on the 3rd April.

Over £15,000 was raised through generous donations to provide a state of the art display case for Samson, who will take pride of place in the first gallery that visitors come to on their route through the museum. Over sixty layers of paint had built up over decades, and now Samson has been revealed in all his true glory, and looks stunning in his new home.

Visitors will be able to learn about the history of this unique Norwich icon, along with his remarkable story of conservation and transformation through a touch screen presentation.
