"Excellent little museum"

"A small museum in centre of Sudbury well worth visiting. Detailing history of the town and information about the armed forces of the town and area during world war 2. Well worth the visit".

"Good free overview of the history of Sudbury"

"We visited the Heritage Centre and Museum which is behind the town hall at the start of our visit to Sudbury and thought it gave a good overview of the history of the town with some interesting information and exhibits. Given it is free if you have any interest in history you would be silly not to visit if in Sudbury"
