Just minutes from Snape, Aldeburgh and RSPB Minsmere The Long Shop Museum offers fun for families, inspiring stories and feats of engineering, gorgeous designs and the Long Shop itself – a true icon of industrial revolution Britain. You can spend a super half-day visit here. Add to this one of the many other great local attractions, and make up a really lovely day out in Suffolk.

The museum is open from March 22nd until October 30th 2016 with an array of Festivals and Events to celebrate steam and marvellous machines, and provide holiday activities for families and more!

Group visits by appointment may be possible during the winter season, please contact us to discuss.   We have planned an exciting range of events for our 2016 season – do keep an eye on our What’s On pages for more information, or see our current Summer Events leaflet below.
