Fakenham Gas Museum sounds like a bit of a joke and features regularly in lists of oddball attractions, so we were prepared to be a bit underwhelmed, but our experience was just the opposite. It's really informative, with lots of industrial plant which extracted the gas from the coal to view. The volunteers are pleasant and explain things clearly, and as well as gas related topics there are displays on other local history themes, as well as local geology, plus an interesting, if rather overacted introductory video. We allowed an hour for our visit which was not long enough, and will look to go back to see the rest of the contents, Anyone with an interest in industrial history will love this place, and the rest can impress there friends by telling them about this quirky place. There are limited opening hours, so check before you travel and allow plenty of time for your visit. Entry is free donations are requested.
