Ipswich Museum

Museum in Ipswich & Essex

Three houses comprise this village historical museum, including the 'first period' Whipple House, which dates from 1677. The bulk of the collection is in the 1800 Heard House, which also contains historic furnishings, textiles and decorative arts, as well as an excellent collection of paintings by Ipswich artists from the 19th and 20th centuries.
