A cracking little museum that has plans to do even more and tries to put on interesting and different temporary exhibitions. When we visited there was an exhibition of Guernsey jumpers and lots of info about their history, including styles from all over the country. There was also a fantastic photographic exhibition of the sea life found on the Sheringham... More

Enjoyed our visit and spent about an hour looking at the lifeboats, recreated Victorian shops etc. Particularly liked the beautiful Victorian photos by Cecil Hewitt (accessed on the computers). Felt rather foolish because after we had left we realised that we had missed the viewing tower and display on the wind farm. The entrance to the stairs leading to the... More

Upon our first visit to Sheringham, we were very interested about the history of the area, this museum helped us understand the area. The staff gave us a lot of information and there were loads of souvenirs on offer - we were happy about the visit. Sadly, we arrived on a foggy day and when we went to the top... More

This isn't the largest museum, but it fills a good hour or two. A great quiz for the kids and lots of information about the lifeboats, fishing history and social history of Sheringham. Also a good section on the wind farm out to sea. Very helpful staff and a great little gift shop. Well done

My son and I enjoyed a visit to the Mo. Its a small but well set out museum. There are areas about local boat building, the RNLI, local people and shops. We enjoyed trying to solve the children's quiz and find all the red herrings.

It was a very windy day and I had difficulty stand up so went into the Mo for a rest from it. The volunteers on the reception were very friendly and soon passed me on to Joyce who told me about the exhibits in the museum. The museum is light and airy and has had a recent face lift due... More

If you like boats, especially lifeboats, and fishermen's knitted jumpers (gansays), this is the place for you. If you're indifferent to the sea (which you probably aren't, because you're in Sheringham), then you'll find less to interest you - shops of yesteryear, which can be found in many museums. Two distinguishing features of The Mo are its observation tower and... More

Visited herewith mu husband and 3 year old daughter, we all enjoyed looking round at the life boats and various exhibitions. The view from the tower is lovely I could have stayed there all day as it was lovely and warm.
