Turn your pupils into fossil mad enthusiasts by taking part in our exciting Deep History Coast Discovery event.

Pupils will use authentic tools to search for fossils before exploring our incredible geology gallery. We can even take your class on a guided fossil hunt on the rich Cromer beach. Call our school booking line on 01493 743944 to register your interest!

Stories from the Sea

Stories from the Sea is a partnership literacy project between the Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth, the National Maritime Museum, and as of 2015, Cromer Museum. The project supports the development of primary school children's writing through inspirational museum school events such as Pirates!

To find out more information, or to use the teacher resources to support learning back in the class room, visit the Stories from the Sea website or email sam.jinks@norfolk.gov.uk.
