Sheringham, on the beautiful North Norfolk coast, has a history that stretches back over a thousand years. Discover 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 artifacts as well as our spectacular fleet of boats. It's well worth a visit!
We're proud of our Museum, and we hope these pages will inspire you to visit us and see why.
Through spring and summer this year the Museum is hosting a specal exhibition of fishermen's ganseys (sweaters) gathered from along the east coast of the UK. With the resurgence of interest in the craft of knitting, this exhibition is drawing attention far and wide.
The ganseys will be displayed in our historic lifeboats - a very fitting (and attractive) arrangement. You can find more information by clicking the 'Read more' links in the Events column to the right
