Daisy Fearns and Shirley Farrow have taken over responsibility for managing the large collection of artefacts in the possession of Diss Museum.
They succeed Alison Molnos who retired at the end of last year and who did the job over many years.
Mrs Fearns moved from Brentwood to Diss just over a year ago.
She taught for 33 years initially as an art teacher going on to be head of year and responsible for younger children coming into the school.
She has travelled widely and lived in Argentina, Sri Lanka, Singapore and Cyprus among other countries.
Mrs Fearns began her association with Diss Museum by volunteering to serve as a steward.
Mrs Farrow has recently retired from being a commercial manager of a firm in Diss.
She served in that role for 13 years.
Her hobbies include art and history, craft and stained glass.
She lives in Diss.
Both paid tribute to the work of Alison Molnos and her helpful training of them last year.
Margaret Ecclestone, chairman of the museum trustees said: “We are delighted to welcome Shirley and Daisy to the team and sure they have a lot to contribute using their complementary talents.
“They have a wealth of experience and new ideas.”
