The Mo is a cracking place to visit right on the front at Sheringham. Wonderful exhibits, cleverly displayed in a small and thoughtful setting. Helpful volunteers add to the enjoyment. The separate area telling the story of wind energy and the viewing tower both provide great views of the sea and inland. But, the real gems are the old RNLI... More

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
