The museum tells the story of the private (non -RNLI) Sheringham lifeboats, with information about the crews and the lives they led. The centrepiece is the preserved Henry Ramey Upcher lifeboat, built in 1894, in its original shed. Other exhibits are housed in restored Victorian longshore fishermen's sheds.
Admission free, voluntary contributions welcome.
