Coxswain Henry Blogg (1876-1954) was the RNLI's most decorated lifeboatman. During his 53 years of service Blogg was awarded three Gold and four Silver RNLI medals for gallantry, as well as the George Cross and British Empire Medal. With the assistance of his dedicated crew, he launched some 387 times and helped to save 873 lives around the Cromer coast. The museum tells incredible stories of Cromer men putting their lives in danger to rescue strangers from the sea. You will find interviews with crew members, 'kit' to try on for yourself, model boats, Morse code practice and more in this super, family-friendly museum.
