Mersea Museum on the Essex Coast
The Museum is now closed and will re-open
to visitors 2nd May 2018.
2017 was an exciting year on the Mersea mud, with many interesting finds. We are planning to display the planks from the bronze age board walk found in February and are raising funds to build the glass-topped section of floor. See In the mud
