Interesting little museum dedicated to Henry Blogg and the early heroes of Cromer's lifeboats. There were some nice activities for little ones, including tables to play at, dress up, brass rubbing and learning to send Morse code. We spent about 45 minutes with our boys,...More

Nicely set modern museum around the old wooden lifeboat which has a lot of children activities and would be a good place to educate them on the risks of the seas.

This museum is right on the front and gives an insight to the RNLI and particular the most successful member of the RNLI to date. There are lots of activities to do which children will appreciate

We went in to get out of the cold and because it was free. I think it is aimed at children more than adults and apart from the boat on display not much else of genuine interest. We did make a donation.
