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.

We were recently having a few days away in Norfolk. The great British summer was in true style lashing a gale.So we took refuge in the Muesum .. that's where the revelation began . What an amazing collection of life boat history. That was just the beginning as you carry on looking it becomes more interesting. The team at the... More

We were staying in the area and decided to visit this museum mainly because of the wind farm exhibition there. It had lots of interesting facts about the RNLI through the ages and it was amazing to see the actual lifeboats used but now replaced, with details of their history. The wind farm exhibition was a lot newer in its... More

We was staying at near by Breck farm. We hadn't ever been to the mo before so thought we would give it a try. I believe we brought a family ticket for about £10. Once in a guide gave a very good talk about the building and history also how they got the boats in. The kids had a quiz... More

I had no idea that this museum was here as I had not been to Sheringham for some time. The museum was small but interesting. Various lifeboats through the ages were the main exhibits. There was also other interesting information and photographs. The volunteers were very enthusiastic. There was also a viewing tower with great views of the sea.

Lovely way to spend an hour. Under £4 each for adults. The volunteer gave a couple minute speech explaining the history of the building which was very interesting, then left us to wander at our own pace. The photos on the touchscreen computer were lovely to see. If you are looking for a free visit you can instead just visit... More

Some nice local history and lifeboats on display. I found the Edwardian pictures very interesting. Shame it was partially shut. There is also a free fisherman's museum nearby I would recommend you visit too.

The mo is very well presented for anyone who likes history. Many engaging exhibits plus a well told story of the history and development of this endearing resort . It also houses a gallery of all the past lifeboats of sheringham and on the floor above the presentation suite for the sheringham shoal wind farm which is clearly visible from... More
