Diss Museum

It’s like the Tardis inside is a comment often made about Diss Museum.


You could easily spend a couple of hours in this apparently small building in the centre of the town’s market place. Window panels depict significant characters and events from the local past- the legend of King John’s murder of Matilda the Fair, the life of Tudor poet-laureate John Skelton, the works of Victorian photographer Cleer Alger and more. Inside there is a charming 19th Century doll’s house, historic pictures of Diss, memorabilia of the family businesses that shaped the town, a carousel about the Mere, Roman finds, a children’s corner and enough individual items to keep you browsing happily.
