Overview

After a bracing seaside walk, why not step inside Cromer Museum. Have a look around the cosy Victorian fisherman's cottage and imagine what it was like to live in Cromer at the end of the 19th Century. Delve into the 'Old Cromer' Gallery with its displays of historic photographs and illustrations of the town. Discover Cromer's history as a Victorian seaside resort with its fine hotels and scandal of mixed bathing. Learn about the daring rescues of Henry Blogg and the Cromer lifeboatmen. New for 2017 Olive Edis Fishermen & Kings: The Photography of Olive Edis, a new permanent display celebrating the life and artistic legacy of Olive Edis. The museum is open from 1 March to 31 October.

Somewhat disappointing, especially for the young, with less 'hands on' than the free Henry Blogg museum nearby. Our visit with a seven year old lasted 10-15 minutes. It was nearly an hour at the other museum.More

Was surprised how small this museum is although does have some interesting stuff to do with local characters and the woolly mammoth would have to say the free one is better!
