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.
The Museum is currently closed until spring 2016 for major building work. Please see below for further details.
Atlantic 75 Education & Archive Centre - Heritage Lottery Fund Grant
The Heritage Lottery Fund has announced a grant to the Museum which will allow us to extend our facilities at The Mo to include an education and archive centre for the town and our visitors.
The Museum has won praise for the quality of its displays but in the four years since it opened at The Mo the shortcomings of the building have become obvious. This grant will enable us to overcome these shortcomings and provide exceptional facilities for Sheringham and the district.
