Visitors will be able to experience the sights, sounds and smells of the machines of yesteryear, as well as checking out a range of crafts and skills, many of which are experiencing a revival at the present time. The Museum’s 80 acre site will be buzzing with working machinery, demonstrations and plenty of live action, as well as all the usual displays, exhibits and historic buildings.

Lisa Harris, Curator at the Museum of East Anglian Life, says: "Without the commitment of a range of individuals and museums, both machines and skills that have been so key to rural life in the past would already have been lost."

Visitors will be able to talk with our demonstrators, have a go at some of the crafts, as well as checking out the range of attractions that the Museum has to offer. There will even be a chance to make your own poster on the museums original 1870 Colombia printing press.

Also running on this weekend is the annual Steam Driver Training Course
