Geographical remit: 


With 17 historic buildings set in 75 acres of beautiful countryside, the Museum of East Anglian Life is a leading regional visitor attraction and the largest independent museum in Suffolk.  The museum is a charity and a social and cultural enterprise supporting the community.  We care for over 40,000 objects - once the everyday items of East Anglian Life.  Our collection has a particular focus on the production of food and social history relating to it, reflective of the region's strong agricultural character.


We aim to enrich people's lives, encouraging enjoyment, learning and participation through our public programme, training and volunteering schemes.  We hold events throughout the year, family activities during the holidays, a programme for schools and community-focused initiatives.  We are a space for people to be active, learn new things, look at the world differently, make friends and give something back.
