Fascinating insight into the town of Sheringham and its inhabitants ("shannocks"), particularly the lifeboatmen. An excellent variety of exhibits really excellently displayed - a real quality feel to the place. My young son was given a fun quiz sheet to complete, the answers were just hard enough but not too hard to find. There is also an area devoted to... More

Visited here while on holiday in North Norfolk. Interesting little museum detailing life in Sheringham as an ancient small fishing port. There are three floors. The first has lifeboats and fishing vessels and lots of information about life at sea of the fishermen, their families and lifestyles along with lifeboatmen. The second floor re-creates an old street as it would... More

What a surprise this was! It looks really small but there's lots crammed in. Seeing the lifeboats up close was amazing. Laid out really well and with excellent and knowledgeable staff. The kids loved try on on the old life jackets. The display about the off shore wind farm was also great, and the views from the top floor are... More

This is a fabulous little local museum, in an unusual building, dealing with lifeboats & life in Sheringham. There is a visitor centre for the Sheringham Shoal wind farm above the museum, which is very interesting.

The museum has several lifeboats on display and we found it very interesting to see them close up. There is also a great viewing tower which tells you all about the off-shore wind farm visible from Sheringham. A good little museum worth an hour of anyone's time. Only downside - nowhere for a coffee!

We were having a stroll and came across this lovely building with no charge for the entry. After climbing the winding stairs we went into a room that had a wonderful view of the sea and the wind turbines with all the information on the walls and they had binoculars for a better view. It would appeal to all ages.
