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

Spent a pleasant hour in The Mo while camping in North Norfolk. Parked in Beeston Regis and walked over Beeston Hump into Sheringham. Very interesting displays and lots of information for all age groups. Having visited Sheringham occasionally over the past 50 years it was good to see the town busy and thriving.

We visited this museum with friends while on a visit from our home in Canada. It offers a wonderful overview of the lives and times of the maritime community of Sheringham. There are a series of lifeboats and fishing boats on display along with many related artefacts. When we were there, the museum was featuring a fine display of the... More

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
