Ground floor galleries (45 minutes to one hour)
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.
You might like 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!
First Floor galleries (45 minutes to one hour)
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. Plus set out along the gantry for spell-binding views of the great life boats below.
Viewing Tower (5-10 minutes)
Enjoy stunning views across the North Sea, over the higgledy piggledy streets of Sheringham and to the cliffs and hills beyond.
