The Mo LogoThe Mo is the newest museum in Sheringham and is practically on the doorstep of The Prairie. It’s named after a little girl who lived in Sheringham over 130 years ago and the museum tells her story, along with those of other locals.

Opened in 2010 by HRH The Duke of Kent, The Mo offers two galleries. The ground floor gallery contains a unique collection of lifeboats and historic fishing boats. You can peer into a fisherman’s cottage and learn about the many crafts and traditions of fishing life that still belong to Sheringham today.

The Mo Viewing GalleryThe first floor gallery contains a number of diverse displays and two exhibition galleries that change on a regular basis. You will learn more about Sheringham during the war years, the Upcher family of Sheringham Park and, bringing the story right up to date, how Sheringham is generating renewable electricity with the Sheringham Shoal Off-Shore Wind Farm.

One of the highlights of The Mo is an enclosed viewing gallery set high above the building which offers a fantastic view of the town, sea and surrounding countryside.
