Interesting little find. A history of life in bygone Sheringham with Lifeboats, olde worldy shops and an insight into the workings of the offshore windfarm. Plenty to read.

Well worth a visit come rain or shine, the Mo offers interest and information on local terrain and sea. Lots of detail also available about Sheringham Shoal wind generation.

Some interesting things on offer in this little coastline museum. Reasonably priced for entry and very friendly helpful staff there to answer any questions. Great view from the tower.

We have walked past this Museum many times but due to a lack of time have not visited. Finally on a rainy afternoon in July with time to spare decided to visit. The museum is very well set out with interesting displays and exhibits that will keep all the family entertained for a couple of hours. Well worth a visit.

A nice museum by the sea, very interesting facts about lifeboats through the ages and several actual boats in there as well. There's a quiz for children to do as you go round although our 7 year old did find that a bit hard. He enjoyed the visit though especially going up into the tower for the view and also... More

Went with our 8yr old son and hubbys parents age 70 - we all enjoyed it, good questionnaire for my son to complete to help keep his interest as went round. Good interactive things to do too for kids and adults. Upstairs we saw details of the Windfarm and on a clear day can see it from the viewing areas.... More

Fascinating little museum with lots to discover about lifeboats. Think it has largest collection of lifeboats anywhere. But there's more too. Discover some of Sheringham's history, or have fun 'going back to school' with chalk boards to add to the fun. Toilets good, and a small shop with reasonably priced souvenirs. The woman staff member who greeted us was very... More
