Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse houses vast collections relating to the ordinary people of Norfolk, particularly those who worked on the land. Displays are housed on both the farm and the workhouse side of the site.
Union Farm is a mixed working farm managed on a traditional basis. There are rare breeds of East Anglian livestock including Suffolk punch horses which visitors can see in action. Horses or vintage tractors are employed at harvest time and for ploughing and harrowing. These activities are seasonal and depend on the weather. The farm is set amid 20 hectares of arable and pastureland and includes woodland and riverside walks.
