Maritime Heritage East

Maritime Heritage East (MHE) is a unique programme running across the East of England working with more than 30 museums and heritage organisations, whose goal is to establish and develop the position and importance of maritime history, both within the region and nationally.

The programme was originally created by Norfolk Museums Service with funding from a range of organisations.  Today it is funded by the members together with help from SHARE.  It is now managed by the members themselves through a management team.

Contact each of the members directly to find out more about the wonderful maritime collections as well as practical information such as museum opening times and admission costs to each of the attractions.
