Artefact of the Month

Well, strictly speaking, not artefacts at all! They are visitors from the Cromer Shoal Marine Conservation Zone spending a few weeks in one of our new exhibits in the museum.

Natural England - the government’s adviser for the natural environment in England - has provided a large aquarium at the museum to show off some of the wonders that exist just off our coast.It is complemented by a locally-produced video which highlights the beauty of the Cnservation Zone and shows us more of the flora and fauna there. We have a very special  area on our doorstep!

These visitors stay with us for four weeks and are then returned to the sea, to be replaced by other creatures from the wide variety that are found there, so this display is different each time you visit.
