Sheringham Museum  



Slide 1 Slide 2 Slide 3

We are open ....

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.

We are currently opening for four days each week with entry conditions in place to comply with Government regulations. Please see the details in the right-hand column.

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 Summer Exhibition is open now -

Our annual special exhibition this year is a display of more than 40 Dutch children’s Ganseys supported by examples of knitting from our own permanent collection. Textile and knitting-related items from the collection of the late Michael Harvey are on display, too, with a small selection of photographs and other artefacts acquired during 2020. Here is a brief glimpse -
