    Don’t miss this place!!! It’s absolutely fantastic!
    Wow! What a fantastic museum! It’s an absolute must if you are visiting the town. It’s packed with all sorts of local artefacts & lots of information about the history of Sheringham. We spent at least 3hrs in there but could have stayed longer. It’s totally fascinating! Brilliant! On the floor below the viewing deck there is lots of information about the wind farms which is extremely interesting. The very top floor is the viewing deck where there are powerful telescopes that you can look out to sea with & get a great view of the wind farm. This floor is actually free to access, you don’t have to pay the museum entrance fee to be able to visit the viewing deck. There is a small shop on the ground floor selling a nice selection of local books, cards & all the staff are so helpful.

    Great little museum
    Great little museum with lots of information and history about the local area. We spent an hour there on a Saturday afternoon. Wasn't very busy at all. Some fascinating displays. Well worth the visit. They had to usher us out so they could close!

    Bigger than it seems!
    Spent a good couple of hours here, absolutely packed with information that's really well laid out and so well connected to the local area. Learnt a lot of fascinating local history and more general information about fishing and lifeboats. So cool to see three of the town's original lifeboats and more fishing boats so well preserved. Staff were exceptionally friendly and clearly passionate.

    Interesting museum
    Really interesting museum with lots of exhibits and also a viewing tower. Lots of interactive things for the kids to use . Friendly staff. Thought ticket price was great value for money. Got round in about an hour with kids rushing around but think it would be more like 2 if we could take our time!

So much to see we had no idea it was going to be so interesting. The views from the top was excellent. We could have stayed longer but needed food.

We popped in without being aware of Sheringham's history. When we left we knew more about a small Norfolk town's history and its fascinating contributions to the Norfolk coast. The exhibits were fabulous and the accompanying information so interesting that we intend to return for more. The contributions made by a highly committed team of helpful attendants can not be missed. All are helpful and knowledgeable. We learned about life boats and the RNLI heroes and saw the boats they used. We found the descriptions of local life fascinating and saw how ordinary people led ordinary lives and yet performed heroically when called upon. You must check out the nicknames of the various characters whose lives figure in the various displays. Brilliant morning passed so quickly.
