ONE of Colchester’s biggest tourist attractions will reopen on May 2 following a £4.2 million overhaul.
Colchester Castle Museum will now feature new displays and artefacts while offering visitors a greater impression of what life was like in Europe’s biggest surviving Norman Keep.
Robyn Llewellyn, lottery fund head for the east, said: “Colchester Castle is one of the finest surviving Norman buildings in Britain, a Scheduled Ancient Monument and Grade I listed.
“We are delighted to see the opening of the refurbished museum in sight, and look forward to the reinterpretation of some the most fascinating stories in our Island’s history.”
