Sheringham, on the beautiful North Norfolk coast, has a recorded history that stretches back over a thousand years. The Museum tells the story of the town and its proud, brave, independent people, told through beautiful displays packed with interesting things to see, hear and do.
Our collection, running over three floors, includes a rich variety of social history items, agricultural and fishing artefacts as well as our spectacular fleet of boats. We have a large collection of fishermen’s ganseys, those beautifully knitted pullovers that stood as the icon of the coastal fishing industry. We have collections of important photographs, fossils ranging from tiny ammonites to bones from a prehistoric elephant, artefacts from both World Wars, an excellent art collection and more. It’s well worth a visit!
The Museum enjoys a spectacular location on the seafront at Sheringham – from the bottom of the High Street, turn right along the sea wall with its historic fishing and lifeboat scenes for about 100 metres and the museum will be in front of you.
Seasonally open to the public during February Half Term and then from Easter to end of October 6 days a week 10.00-4.30pm
