The museum building is the 1923 ex-Cromer Lifeboat shed. The building was brought by sea to Southwold and restored in 1998 and is now one of the few remaining examples of its type built by the RNLI at that time. The 'Alfred Corry' was the Southwold No1 Lifeboat dedicated on Easter Monday 1893. The lifeboat is housed in the museum and is undergoing a programme of full restoration to return her to her original lifeboat form. The exhibits tell the history of this Southwold rowing and sailing lifeboat and her crew, which served from 1893 to 1918, using photographs, models and some lifeboat equipment. There is also a display showing the progress of restoration.
