“Conserving and celebrating Sheringham’s rich heritage”
Sheringham Museum is an independent charity housed in a unique building on the East Promenade. We tell the story of Sheringham from its earliest settlements, through periods when the fear of invasion was very real to the Victorian Age, when so many industrial and communication developments meant the spreading of a rail network that eventually reached Sheringham in 1887. This opened Sheringham up to the world. Within 20 years a sleepy fishing village developed into a thriving Edwardian seaside resort.
On display is our historic fleet of lifeboats, crab boats, social history, photographs, artwork, geology and palaeontology. We host a changing summer exhibitions to complement out three story building filled with displays. The Sheringham Shoal Windfarm display and our Tower with its 360° view is well worth seeing.
