Colchester Castle Redevelopment
Our award-winning Castle Museum will re-open to the public on 2 May 2014 after being closed for a major refurbishment.
A new state of the art Museum has been installed, which will use the latest technology to give visitors a unique experience. An interactive hub, full-size burial reconstruction, audio and visual character stories and video projections will be included in the new-look Museum.
Much-needed repairs have also been made to the ancient building - which is coming up for its one-thousandth birthday!
The project will reveal more of the Castle's historic interior, while brand-new displays will tell the 2,000-year story of Colchester in a fresh and exciting new way.
A new glass lift will help make more of the Castle accessible to wheelchair users.
We look forward to welcoming you back across the bridge!
