RNLI Henry Blogg Museum


This family friendly museum tells the courageous history of saving lives at sea in Cromer. The first lifeboat was brought to Cromer in 1805 and the incredible volunteers have won 64 medals for their amazing efforts through the past 200 years. Henry Blogg served on the lifeboat for 53 years and is the most decorated RNLI crewmember. He was coxswain of the lifeboat H.F Bailey during World War II which is on display in the museum. There are also model lifeboats, Henry Blogg's impressive collection of medals, old movies, photographs and paintings as well as lots of hands on activities.
