Fodor's Review

This family-friendly museum past the outskirts of Bury St. Edmunds has indoor galleries displaying items from the Anglo-Saxon period (410–1066) as well as a reconstruction of a village from that period with thatched-roof houses. Costumed performers give demonstrations of traditional crafts, and there's also a small farm with rare breeds of pigs and chickens. Call ahead in winter as the hours vary.
