A Visit to the Museum

Sheringham Museum is located at The Mo, an iconic location for Sheringham residents. It sits right on the seafront - walk down the high street and turn right when you reach the sea. Follow the sea wall with the historic fishing and lifeboat scenes for about 100 metres, past The Crown and the museum will be in front of you. Go down the steps at the end of the sea wall to get to the entrance.

The museum is, of course, wheelchair accessible, but you need to take the ramp to the left at the seawall and then double back to the museum entrance. Once inside, all areas of the building are accessible and there is left access to all floors.

Because the building nestles into the cliff face, it is larger than you might expect, so it's easy to spend an hour and a half (or more) exploring our collection. We don't have a cafe, so our tickets are all-day tickets - you can drop in and out to one of the many great cafes in the town whenever you wish.

We are an independent museum, receiving no regular funding, so although we are mostly volunteer-staffed, we need to charge an entry fee to cover our many running costs. The table below shows the list of entry fees -

  Adults £4.00
  Concessions £3.50
  Children (under 16) £2.00
  Family Pass £10.00

A Family Pass covers up to five people, one of whom must be under 16.

Children under 5, carers, Friends of Sheringham Museum, members of the Art Fund and members of the Museums Association have free entry. As an independent museum, we are not part of the 'Norfolk Museums Pass' scheme.

Entry fees go towards the cost of running the building and preservation of the historic artefacts in our collection

There are regular rail and bus services to Sheringham, all terminating at the railway station, where there is also a large PAYG car park. The museum is a moderate walk away - approx. 5-10 minutes - and there is a smaller PAYG car park quite close to the museum, near the beach end of the high street.

You will find information about our opening times and contact details at the foot of each page of this website.
