Cromer Museum

Book Tickets Online


Step inside this cosy Victorian fisherman's cottage and imagine what it was like to live in Cromer at the end of the 19th Century. Browse in the Old Cromer Gallery with its huge archive of historic photographs and illustrations of the town. Discover Cromer's history as a Victorian seaside resort with its fine hotels and scandalous mixed bathing.

Visit the Geology Gallery and see an amazing collection of fossils – all found in North Norfolk. Enjoy fascinating displays revealing why Cromer is renowned as a geological area of international importance. Find out about the famous West Runton Mammoth, Britain's oldest and most complete elephant fossil and see some of its actual bones. Marvel at a cast of the skull of a Mosasaur -- a huge marine reptile common when North Norfolk was covered in ocean over 70 million years ago.
