Step inside an interesting museum and discover Cromer’s history as a Victorian seaside resort with its scandal of mixed bathing. Learn about the daring rescues of Henry Blogg and the Cromer lifeboat men and then head to the ‘Old Cromer’ Gallery with its displays of historic photographs and illustrations of the town.
Take 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.
This informative small museum holds the largest collection of Oliver Edis’ work, consisting of over 2000 glass plate negatives, prints and rare autochromes, the first commercially available colour photographs.
There are free audio guides available to make your visit even more interesting. At the shop you can also buy local history guides which Cromer Museum had published.
The whole of the family would enjoy a visit here.
All public galleries and spaces are fully accessible. A lift connects the ground and first floor of the museum. Carers are not charged admission. Assistance dogs are welcome.
