Sheringham Museum  


Welcome to our Online Museum

More items are being added to our collections in digital formats, so it is necessary for the Museum to exhibit them in those formats - i.e. on video screens, mainly, but also via sound systems in some cases. Here you can see digital artefacts which might normally be held in reserve, waiting for their chance to be displayed on our limited number of in-house screens. True, you can't quite appeciate the impressive size of our four lifeboats, but you might watch a video about their histories and the efforts that went into their restoration.There are many similar examples - the two approaches complement each other.

*** Please note - if you view a video in full-screen mode, you may need to use your 'Escape' key when the video finishes to return to your normal screen view.
