Although quite small this museum does contain a wealth of local history, including 2 old lifeboats, I especially liked the room containing information about the local windfarm. The observation room at the top of the building is novel. Well worth a visit

Lots of interesting items and information, including several lifeboats and fishing boats. Also some interesting items on Sheringham in the past. Very enjoyable.
