Visitor Information

Our museum was established in 1990
to conserve and celebrate the cultural, industrial and agricultural history of Coggeshall

We are in the centre of Coggeshall next to the Village Hall and adjoining the public car park.

The car park is free on Sundays and in the week for the first 2 hours, (you must get a ticket – press the green button twice)

2-4 hours costs £1 and all day is £4.

There is a disabled parking space outside the museum and others are close by in the car park.

There are public toilets next door at the Village Hall –  ask if you would like the key to the disabled access toilet.

There is no charge for entry to the museum but donations are always very welcome.
