Maritime Heritage East
Maritime Heritage East (MHE) is a unique programme running across the East of England working with over 40 museums, whose goal is to establish and develop the position and importance of maritime history, both within the region and nationally.
The programme is managed through the award winning Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth, the nominated gateway museum for the region.
On this website you can search for practical information such as museum opening times and admission costs as well as spend time exploring online exhibitions and journeying through themes, which unite the maritime collections across the East of England.
Sailors’ Valentines are the hexagonal shell designs which sailors returning from the West Indies supposedly put together using attractively shaped and coloured shells collected from the Caribbean to present to their wives or girlfriends when they reached home
