Visiting Us

Admission price…

Free admission … although we do not charge, donations are very much appreciated.


The museum is wheelchair accessible, however, there is a mezzanine level which is only accessible by stairs.

Two very good reasons for visiting I have been aware of and have loved the traction engines of Charles Burrell for many years and this was something of a pilgimage to visit the place where they were built. Though the museum is small and the opening times restricted (quite understandable as it is run by volunteers and free of charge) it really is worth a visit. I planned my trip to Norfolk around this museum and the Dad’s Army Museum opening times and was so glad that I did. Not only are there the beautiful and elegant engines there is also much on the history of the company that constructed them. The other reason of course for visiting is to see Jones’s van from Dad’s Army. The talk about the history of the van was fascinating and a visit here is an essential part of the Dad’s Army trail in Thetford.
