Welcome to Diss Museum - “A little jewel in Diss!”
There is something for everybody in our award-winning community museum.
Please browse through the site to find out more about us.
How to find us
We are in the centre of Diss Market Place in the old Shambles building, once a butcher’s shop. There are several car parks within walking distance.
We are pleased to announce that the Museum re-opened for 2022 on Saturday 12 March.
The Museum is run by volunteers and, without our volunteer stewards, we would not be able to do this, we are very grateful to them for their continued support.
As of March 2022, the Museum will be open on a Friday, Saturday and Monday, 11am to 3pm, as well as Sundays if there is an event happening in the town.
Admission is free. The Museum is wheelchair accessible.
We are pleased to announce that the Museum will be re-opening on Saturday 12 March at 10.30am.
For the launch we are having a re-enactment of when the Prince and Princess of Wales came to Diss in 1866. They will make a ‘Royal Return Visit’, arriving by vintage car, there will be a barrel organ and bagpipes, a welcome by the Mayor and Royal Speeches. Cash prizes will be awarded for the best Edwardian costumes.
There are more details of the event on Diss Museum facebook page
Change to opening days
To start we will only be opening the Museum on a Friday, Saturday and Monday, 11am to 3pm. If there are any events on in town such as the Organ Festival we will open on a Sunday as well. Hopefully, if all goes well we will be able to go back to opening every day.
