The Museum is an award winning, volunteer run, visitor attraction which offers an enjoyable and informative day out for the family.

Housed in the original Grade II listed 1942 radar operations building, the Museum provides a unique window into the history of radar covering the period of WWII to the Cold War in addition to the exhibition spaces, offers the visitor a wide range of facilities.

The museum has twenty-five exhibition rooms and over 10,000 display items. It is suggested that you allow yourself between 2-3 hours to see our entire collection and attend our two presentation talks.

We are open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Bank Holiday Mondays.

World War Two Presentations are at 10:30am and 1:30pm

Cold War Presentations are at 11:30am and 2:30pm

Please note that because of the nature of the military building, which was constructed in 1942, it does mean that access to all areas is not always possible for those using wheelchairs. Where possible ramps have been installed, but the height and steepness of some stairs, in particular those in the Cold War Operations Room, may mean that this is not always practical or possible. In this case there is a video available in an accessible room.

Accessibility

The Museum has been access audited by Access North Norfolk Action and changes have been made to ensure that as many people as possible can enjoy their visit. However the nature of the military building, which was constructed in 1942, does mean that access to all areas is not always possible for those using wheelchairs. Where possible ramps have been installed, but the height and steepness of some stairs, in particular those in the Cold War Operations Room, may mean that this is not always practical or possible. In this case there is a video available in an accessible room. We are constantly endeavouring to improve our access and reassess options regularly.
