Welcome to The Munnings Art Museum

Sir Alfred Munnings (1878-1959) was an immensely successful, yet controversial, artist whose career spanned almost 70 years. He is a major figure in the great tradition of British equestrian art and is celebrated for his depiction of English rural life in the early 20th century.

Visitors to the Munnings Art Museum at his former home, Castle House, can explore the life and work of this prolific East Anglian artist, and former President of the Royal Academy, through a series of carefully curated displays using the museum’s comprehensive collection of paintings, drawings and archival material.
