Friends of The Norwich Museums

Supporting the Norwich Museums

In 2021 The Friends of the Norwich Museums celebrated its 100th year and is the oldest independent Friends Group in the country.       

The Friends of the Norwich Museums was set up in 1921 to acquire artefacts for the Norwich Museums.
Today the Friends are even more important, helping raise money, not just for acquisitions, but for conservation and displays and contributing vital funding for larger projects within the Museums.
