The Lanman Museum

Housed within Framlingham Castle, the Lanman Museum collection includes artefacts relating to all aspects of daily life in Framlingham, UK, over many centuries. The museum is run by a charity independent of English Heritage who manage the Castle, but the museum is generally open whenever the Castle is open, see Castle opening times and access information.  To make a donation to the museum click here.  Latest news here.
