The Manor House on Honey Hill
Please note that the Manor House closed as a museum in 2006. Its collections have been moved to Moyse's Hall Museum.

The Manor House on Honey Hill was a Public Museum from 1993 until 2006. Its collections have been moved into the Moyse's Hall Museum. In 2007 it was sold for use as a private house once again. Some of the information about the House and its former displays is retained here for its own intrinsic interest. These collections are now accessible via Moyse's Hall Museum.

One feature of the Manor House displays was that most information about each display was accessible from individual computer displays in each gallery. By keying in the reference of any item, a full description could be displayed to members of the public. Although very advanced for its time in 1993, this practice soon became tedious to use, and provoked queueing for use of the terminals.

Shown below for historical interest is the original introduction to the Manor House Museum:

A Georgian mansion which has been restored to its 18th century glory, housing collections of horology and fine and decorative art. Here you can discover clocks, watches, paintings, furniture, costumes, ceramics and objets d'art from the seventeenth to the twentieth century.

The collections are displayed in superb surroundings and interpreted through computer screens, bringing a wealth of knowledge to your fingertips.
There is a changing programme of events and exhibitions. To receive a leaflet call the number below.
The museum has a tearoom serving light refreshments and a shop with a wide range of gifts and souvenirs.
