Arts & Museums
The Lynn Museum has its origins in 1844 after members of the Lynn Conversazione and Society of Arts decided to set it up. Over the years, it kept changing its venue from the Welwick House to the Atheneum and finally to the Union Baptist Chapel. A number of engaging workshops, classes, nature trails and lectures are organized for kids as well as senior citizens. Such is the inclusiveness of this museum. Check website for more details.
True's Yard Museum houses items of social history of this region. It operates independantly and is predominantly run by volunteers who come forward to support this museum. This museum narrates the tale of the ancient fishing community of old North End, Kings Lynn. At True Yard, you can find everything that has remained of the old fisher folk of this region. One striking aspect about the True's Yard Museum is the cottages. Consisting of couple of rooms, one downstairs and one upstairs, these cottages were once inhabited by a family of eleven. While the 9 children slept on 1 single bed, the parents slept on the floor of the room.
