Welcome!

Sheringham, on the beautiful North Norfolk coast, has a history that stretches back over a thousand years. The Museum tells the story of the town and its proud, brave, independent people over the last two centuries, told through beautiful displays packed with interesting things to see, hear and do.

Step inside stunning galleries and walk amongst Sheringham's extraordinary historic fleet of lifeboats and fishing boats. Our collection includes a rich variety of photographs, social history items, agricultural and fishing artefacts as well as our spectacular fleet of boats. It's well worth a visit!

The Museum organises well over 20 public events over the year, with a major 3-month exhibition each summer and events to support Sheringham's many cultural initiatives. Our column over there to the right shows just the next four. A fuller list, with more details of the events is available by clicking HERE
