Location Map

A place of people and boats

On the seafront in Sheringham, this museum tells the story of the town and its proud, brave and independent people. Inside you will find bright, modern galleries where you can walk amongst an extraordinary historic fleet of lifeboats and fishing boats. Packed with fascinating stories and interesting details, memories of this museum will stay with you for a long time. There’s also a  viewing tower to climb for great views of the North Sea, Sheringham and the surrounding hills. This summer will see the opening of a new education and archive centre for the town and visitors, made possible thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
