Lifeboat Museum

This was a great little museum, housing seven boats. We particularly liked the information about the Ganseys. The staff were very helpful.

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. Certainly was not expecting the collection of historic lifeboats and... More
