Almonry Heritage Centre
The Almonry is a 14th Century Grade I Listed building that was once the home of the Almoner, a monk from the neighbouring medieval abbey who dispensed alms to the poor.
Now it houses an eclectic collection within its twelve display rooms which takes you from dinosaurs roaming the swamps, through the turbulent Middle Ages, right up to the end of the 20th Century. Artefacts include the stunning Saxon grave goods, 14th Century Abbots chair, 18th Century costume, fairground galloper, and even a Crimean cannon in the back gardens! In the Victorian schoolroom families can take part in the activities or browse the local history point, children’s trails run throughout the school holidays and groups of 10 or more can book a guided tour.
A visit to the Almonry gives a profound insight into the communities that have shaped this area, so why not come and explore thousands of years of history in one unique building!
We are a proud supporter of Kids In Museums.
Opening Times: 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday, 2pm-5pm Sunday (March to the end of October only).
