This beautiful Tudor mansion is the jewel in the crown of Ipswich's historic past boasting over 500 years of history.
The family-friendly Animals in the Art Gallery exhibition is open until 14 April 2024.
Familiar British wildlife, from badgers to barn owls, have made a home amongst artworks from the Ipswich collection. You’ll find cats, dogs, horses, cows and more in the paintings, sculptures and ceramics on display, as well as artworks that reflect different animal habitats from woodland to coastal, gardens to urban.
A new creative studio inside the gallery provides a great space for families to play, draw, get creative and make their own artistic animals!
Looking for things to do? Our team have devised a variety of activities to help educate and entertain. Inspired by the collections across Colchester and Ipswich, from art to nature, archaeology to social history, we hope to bring the museum to you!
