Woolpit and District Museum

Food icon Shop icon

The Museum first opened in 1985 and is run by volunteers. Woolpit Museum is said to be the smallest in Suffolk. The displays are changed annually and our team can arrange guided tours of the village by prior booking. Lectures can also be arranged. The one permanent display is Woolpit brickmaking which has records going back over 400 years. The famous 'Woolpit white' bricks were shipped world wide and a non-proven connection is that the first White House in America was constructed with these bricks. Part of the works is still there and can be approached by one of the village walks.
