Norfolk Museums Collections

Living in Norfolk

This section concerns the collections which can sometimes be seen as the everyday, the commonplace. Spanning the centuries, these objects signify elements of everyday life to those who have lived in Norfolk. Not always the richest, or seemingly important, these objects represent an element of a moment in time for the lives of the earlier owners, those which have lived and worked in this special area. Many of the objects here are recognisable in our own lives; in others the meaning is less tangible.
