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.

It was well set out and had lots of additional information. We went as a family and all found bits we particularly enjoyed. The 'shops' on the first floor were fascinating. Well worth a visit.

Very good exhibits bringing alive the history of the town with the sea. You can certainly while away a good 3 hours or more. The small row of old shop fronts was good. The turbine wind farm display was very educational with interactive items for the children to learn from. The panorama viewing tower is worth a visit.

At last we went to the 'Mo' (named after a lady who once lived in a cottage on the site, in days of yore.) What a lovely surprise I had, there was an added attraction of the 'History of Ganseys,' the woollen jumpers that fishermen wore/wear, with examples of the patterns which are different for fishing villages all round our...

This is a great place to visit, telling the story of Sheringham lifeboats over the years. Several boats to look at and really friendly staff to explain things. Don't miss the upstairs glass viewing area

I stumbled upon this little museum while staying nearby. Was really pleased when I had walked around. It was near closing time so I didn't get to look around the boats much, but it was the social history I was more interested in on the upper floor. Go up the tower and have a look around - it is well... More

This is well worth a visit for people of all ages! It is a deceptively large space and has several large old lifeboats, displays of wartime shops, a fascinating exhibition about the wind farm on the top and currently an exhibition of ganseys ( fishermens jumpers). The view from the top is stunning and has a great little shop and... More
