After a bracing seaside walk, why not step inside Cromer Museum. Have a look around the cosy Victorian fisherman's cottage and imagine what it was like to live in Cromer at the end of the 19th Century. Delve into the 'Old Cromer' Gallery with its...more

I found the museum very interesting. Walking round the fishermens cottages and seeing what it was like to live in them. The information on the West Runton Wooley Mamal was very good

An interesting museum but very small and quite pricey for what was there. The geology and photos were very interesting and the courtyard was a pleasant place to sit.

Small and perfectly formed! Right in the centre of Cromer beside the church this museum offers a window into the past showing you how fishermen and their families lived. There's other information about Cromer's past but the thing I remember most is the fisherman's cottage....More

I was not born here in Cromer, but have find a lot of information about how Cromer's life was all those years ago. I also find some information about one of my late husband's uncle who died at sea

Was surprised how small this museum is although does have some interesting stuff to do with local characters and the woolly mammoth would have to say the free one is better!

Lovely little museum based around a courtyard of old fishermen's cottages. One of the cottages has been recreated to look how it used to including some scarily life-like mannequins. There is a free audio guide spoken in a Cromer accent which are well worth listening...More
