Welcome to the Munnings Art Museum

Paintings of horses by Sir Alfred Munnings (1878-1959) have been described as showing ‘a sculptor’s grasp of essential form’. In 2016, the special exhibition, “In Focus: Munnings and the Horse” will explore in detail the artist’s skill in depicting the equine form through pencil, paint and sculpture.

Visitors to The Munnings Art Museum, in his former home, Castle House, will also discover much, much more about the life and work of this prolific East Anglian artist.


Beautifully proportioned and filled with light, the museum’s well-appointed public rooms have a remarkably welcoming and friendly atmosphere
