About Us

Aldeburgh Museum is a small local museum, housed in one of the best preserved Tudor public buildings in Britain. Dating from the mid-16th century it originally contained 6 small shops on the ground floor and a spacious meeting hall on the first floor. The building is situated on the site of the old market place. There was a Market Cross, which has since been swept into the sea.

When not in use as the Town's council chamber, this hall offers an attractive display area for the Museum. The displays contain items of local interest such as photographs and artefacts depicting life in Aldeburgh. The collection also contains Anglo-Saxon finds from 1862 and Snape ship burial excavations in 1992.
