The Mo was always a delight, a great snapshot of Sheringham life past. Now greatly and tastefully extended, there is much to give a unique insight into the locality of this attractive holiday destination. The current 'Stitches in Time' exhibition, the latest of interesting and informative exhibitions, is a must for visitors. It chronicles the endeavours of the Knitting Corps... More

Not my usual thing, but nice and light and airy, interesting to see the different boats, shops, knitting, wind farm information and the view from tower was spectacular. A great experience.

This museum is amazing, it was our first time here and it was so well laid out and quirky, I loved to see the variation of items on display and read the history of it all. There is a knitting exhibition on about the First World War with replicas, an original knitted bandage, photos, and brilliant film footage. I will... More

It is a very good museum only ever been it the free wind turban bit. that bit is very good as you can find out about where they are in the sea and you can look through telescopes. hoping to go in the actually museum next time

We found this place by accident on a day trip from Norwich and what an excellent find it turned out to be. The ground floor had several historic life boats on display. The first floor had lots of interesting exhibits showcasing areas of local interest: a pharmacy, boat builders workshop and the Zeppelin raid in the World War I. All... More

The museum may be small, but it certainly delivers on providing information on the little town of Sheringham in a very digestible form. It's well laid out with interesting exhibits and helpful, friendly staff.
