Slide 1 Slide 2 Slide 3


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 five. A fuller list, with more details of the events is available by clicking HERE

Summer Exhibition - Ganseys from the Netherlands

Our very special Summer Exhibition is now open, with over sixty Dutch ganseys on view in a spectacular display around and above our lifeboats. Well worth a visit!. It will end with a weekend Symposium bringing together a number of experts in various fields to discuss technical and social issues raised by the exhibition. A limited number of tickets are available HERE for the Symposium; the link below will take you to a page where you can see the program.
