Guided tours around the Stories of Lynn Museum & Old Gaol House are now available on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays at 1pm.
The tours were previously only available on Tuesdays, but thanks to a team of volunteer guides, their availability has now tripled.
The tours last between 45 minutes and an hour, and are included in the price of admission to the museum.
Cllr Elizabeth Nockolds, deputy leader and cabinet member for Culture, Heritage and Health, said: “Visitor numbers to Stories of Lynn are increasing all the time, so I’m delighted that we can now offer guided tours to more people. Our wonderful volunteer guides are now sharing their in-depth knowledge of the museum’s exhibits on three days a week, rather than just one. A guided tour is a fantastic way to get the most out of your visit, and there’s no extra charge for it!
“The tours can be tailored to your interests too: if you’re particularly interested in our magnificent mayoral regalia, or Lynn’s fascinating Hanseatic history, just ask your guide to tell you more about it. Exploring the exhibits on your own is a great way to take in the museum, but you might just find the guides have some extra insights!”
Stories of Lynn Museum & Old Gaol House brings King’s Lynn’s fascinating history vividly to life with an exciting interactive exhibition. Set within the magnificent 15th-century Trinity Guildhall, Stories of Lynn invites visitors to discover the stories of the merchants, mayors, magistrates, and miscreants who shaped Lynn; one of England’s most important medieval port towns.
The Guildhall also houses the medieval Stone Hall, and the Regency Card Room and Assembly Room. These rooms are available to view, and included in the tour, on Tuesdays and Sundays.
