Sheringham Museum




Events at the Museum

The museum organises and presents a range of events throughout the year, generally cultural in nature. Our aim is to provide a series of enjoyable experiences for our community.

These events can cover quite a range of activities, but they all relate in some way to the life and culture of Sheringham and its surrounds.

The Sheringham History Group holds most of its meetings at the museum, where they present an interesting range of talks. You can see a list of upcoming talks as well as more information about the group by visiting their website -
