Sheringham Museum  



Slide 1 Slide 2 Slide 3


Opening soon ...

Sheringham, on the glorious 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.

After our enforced lockdown, we are looking forward to re-opening on Wednesday, 19th  May, with entry conditions in place to comply with Government regulations. Please see the details in the column on the right, (or probably below if you are reading this on a phone.)

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Sheringham Museum’s opening and 10 years of being situated on the ‘Mo’ site. To celebrate, we have installed some new displays and enhanced others. Together, they tell the story of Sheringham’s past, its geology and palaeontology, its social history, its lifeboat / fishing heritage and more, through photographs, videos, artwork and, of course, interesting artefacts.

Our annual special exhibition this year is a display of more than 40 Dutch children’s Ganseys complemented with examples of knitting from our own permanent collection.
