  • What a superb little museum dedicated to telling the story of the amazing lifeboat men of cromer. Highlighting one man and his boat and the brave crew who between them saved over 800 men. This is a story of incredible bravery and acts of astonishing heroism. Go visit this special special place if you are anywhere near cromer. Well worth it.
  • Not to be confused with the actual Lifeboat Station which is at the end of the pier, this is a museum detailing the life of local character and lifeboatmen Henry Blogg who saved many lives during his time on the lifeboats. The museum contains one of his lifeboats, memorabilia, and lots of interactivity for the children including dress ups, quiz and a launch button (launches a timeline video of a launch not the lifeboat). Great reminder of how hard life was then and a time to respect his work and the work of others. Also visit the Rocket Cafe upstairs - quality.
  • Excellent museum for browsing the RNLI history and the development of rescue boats.
  • Incredibility brave man
  • Nice museum, its free, good for kids and adults and has a lovely cafe looking out to the sea.
