Southwold Museum has a collection of items relating to the natural history of Southwold by way of a pictorial display including photographs and artefacts.
The whole span of history is here, from fossil remains through sea battles, the development of the town’s architecture, its industries and artistic life, the rise and fall of its railway, its famous land-locked lighthouse, its ever-changing coastline to the 20th century transformation of this busy fishing community into a prosperous seaside resort.
In 2008, the museum reopened after a major rebuilding and redesign programme with generous support from the Southwold Trust and the Adnams Charity. The Southwold Museum has now been brought impressively into the 21st Century with interactive displays, equal-access facilities, automated climate-control and much enhanced display space. Yet at the same time it retains the intimacy and charm that have made it such a well loved local institution for more than seventy years.
