Situated within Orford Castle, the museum includes some of the Orford Borough Regalia as well as archaeological finds from the surrounding area. These include rare coins, brooches and pottery dating from Roman and Anglo-Saxon times.

The Bronze Age Story, our newest display, shows the stunning Butley Hoard of axe heads and a replica of the Boyton gold torc on loan from Colchester and Ipswich Museum Service

The museum's displays are supplemented by six graphics panels featuring maps, charters, pictures and photographs illustrating fascinating aspects of the Orford story from earliest times until the present day.
