A nice museum by the sea, very interesting facts about lifeboats through the ages and several actual boats in there as well. There's a quiz for children to do as you go round although our 7 year old did find that a bit hard. He enjoyed the visit though especially going up into the tower for the view and also... More

Went with our 8yr old son and hubbys parents age 70 - we all enjoyed it, good questionnaire for my son to complete to help keep his interest as went round. Good interactive things to do too for kids and adults. Upstairs we saw details of the Windfarm and on a clear day can see it from the viewing areas.... More

Fascinating little museum with lots to discover about lifeboats. Think it has largest collection of lifeboats anywhere. But there's more too. Discover some of Sheringham's history, or have fun 'going back to school' with chalk boards to add to the fun. Toilets good, and a small shop with reasonably priced souvenirs. The woman staff member who greeted us was very... More

Very interactive. Lots of information about the lifeboats, history of Sheringham and the offshore windfarm. Very hands on, good quizzes to do with the kids - lots of different things to look at. Have a go and see how much electricity you can make. Definitely worth visiting.

"The Mo" is a museum which is very centred around the evolution of boats and fishing. There are many old boats there and there is also a heavy focus - or at least there was at the time I visited - on jerseys and other kinds of traditional fisherman's jumpers. Upstairs, there is an exhibit focused on the wind farms... More
