A Good way to spend an hour in Sheringham

A very well laid out compact museum. It covers most aspects of Sheringham. If you take your time expect to be there for about an hour.

Be aware that you can visit the the Windfarm exhibition and the viewing area FREE of charge, you don't have to pay for visiting the Lifeboat Museum if you don't want to. The displays and videos have not been updated since before the Windfarm was built although the hand outs were up to date. Certainly worth a quick visit of... More

We visited The Mo whilst on holiday. It was very interesting and contained so much history and information about the local area. Our visit was enhanced by the Manager showing us many of the exhibits and giving informed explanations about everything. I was using a large mobility scooter at the time and the access was very good even so.

My family love visiting local museums when on holiday and we were amazed at this one. Apart from the viewing tower from the outside this place gives nothing away and you could easily pass it by I was taken aback by what they have managed to squeeze into the space.

Spent a pleasant hour in The Mo while camping in North Norfolk. Parked in Beeston Regis and walked over Beeston Hump into Sheringham. Very interesting displays and lots of information for all age groups. Having visited Sheringham occasionally over the past 50 years it was good to see the town busy and thriving.

We visited this museum with friends while on a visit from our home in Canada. It offers a wonderful overview of the lives and times of the maritime community of Sheringham. There are a series of lifeboats and fishing boats on display along with many related artefacts. When we were there, the museum was featuring a fine display of the... More
