Dads Army Museum Thetford

Things to do in Norfolk: Dads Army Museum Thetford

Permission to speak sir! The museum tells the story of how the TV show Dad's Army was filmed in the Norfolk town of Thetford.

Since it opened in December 2007, the Dad’s Army Museum has gone from strength to strength. Today thousands of visitors make their way to Thetford (Walmington-on-Sea) each year to see where the series was filmed and to learn more about one of the most enduring comedy programmes ever produced.

The museum is independently run by an enthusiastic and dedicated platoon of volunteers and the current opening hours are Saturdays ,other days as advertised. They also organise private visits for coach groups, talks and tours – by prior arrangement only and subject to availability. We are a dog friendly museum.

The beautiful 1940s style Marigold Tea Rooms opened in 2011 and is an essential part of any visit to the Museum. You will love their home made wartime recipe cakes and tea from British made Brown Betty teapots.
