Journeys takes visitors on a fascinating trip through time, looking at the many types of journeys people made and continue to make.

This exhibition at Lynn Museum features: journeys of faith, of trade and exploration, migration and settlement and journeys for fun.

King’s Lynn has been associated with pilgrimage since medieval times when thousands of pilgrims passed through the town on their way to the Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham, and this exhibition focuses on the story of medieval pilgrimage.

Lynn Museum’s extensive collection of medieval pilgrim badges sits at the heart of the exhibition. Discovered in the mud in the rivers Purfleet and Ouse, the badges were worn by pilgrims as a keepsake and good luck symbol.
