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.
