Mundesley museum hoping for success again this year
A north Norfolk museum which welcomed more than 1,000 visitors through its doors last year is hoping for the same success again when it re-opens in May.
Mundesley Maritime Museum, based on Beach Road in the village, had more than 1,400 visitors walk through its doors last year when it was open from May through to September, with the theme of Mundesley's Railway Heritage.
That number was 10-12pc up on last year, says curator Christopher West.
The museum will open this year on May 1 and stay open until September 30 from 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm daily.
Although the theme has not definitely been decided, Mr West said: 'It could well be on theme of naval vessels and well known ships from around the Mundesley area.

'We are very pleased with how things went last year.'
As well as having a 'themed' exhibition, the museum also charts the general history of the village and coastguard and houses the Mundesley coastguard lookout.
