What a great little museum. The organisation was well thought out and arranged in themes. We particularly enjoyed the street of shops etc and the RNLI boats etc. but the views from the tower are well worth the trip up the spiral staircase. The staff/volunteers...More

We all enjoyed our visit to The Mo it gave us a very good lesson in the history of Sheringham and it,s people. We particularly liked searching for all the clues to make up a name - our grandchildren were hooked.

After you've visited the Fishermen's Centre nearby, this is well worth a visit. It's very modern, spacious and airy and very well laid out, giving lots of information about life in Sheringham. The RNLI features heavily- quite rightly so- the boats and information about them...More

We enjoyed looking at the boats and artifacts; talking to the knowledgeable volunteer staff and finally the information about the wind farm at sea.

Hello Mags T - the wind-farm visitor centre and viewing tower is really lovely, if the weather is good, and we are the place to come to look at boats! A big thank you to you for writing a review saying you enjoyed your visit.

This museum tells the story of the people of Sheringham and their lives which is greatly connected with the sea. Most of the exhibition focuses on the fishing industry and boats.

Sheringham M, Manager at The Mo, Sheringham Museum, responded to this reviewResponded 2 weeks ago

Hello Trisha H, our displays do focus on the fishing industry and the sea, as Sheringham was and still is such a seaside town. Thank you for you review and coming to visit us!
