Starting with the breath-taking Boat Hall, our ground floor displays showcase Sheringham’s unique collection of lifeboats, placing them alongside historic fishing boats and seaside stories. Peer into a fisherman’s cottage, hear about the miracles of boat building and wonder at the many crafts and traditions of everyday fisher-family life.
Click HERE to take a 3-D virtual tour of the Ground floor, using your mouse cursor to take you around. Click on the place on the floor where you would like to stand, then drag sideways (either way) to view all around that spot. Enjoy - but come and see the real thing; we have a lot more interesting information for you!
On the first floor you will find diverse displays include the charming, colourful shops of Shannock Street, two changing exhibition galleries and the action-packed Sheringham Shoal Wind Farm Visitor Centre – designed by one of the teams behind the Science Museum. You’ll find out more about Sheringham during the war years and about the remarkable Upcher family of Sheringham Park. Then you can set out along the gantry for spell-binding views of the great life boats below.
