Welcome to Lowestoft Maritime Museum
2018 was not only the 60th anniversary of the formation of the Lowestoft & East Suffolk Maritime Society but also the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Lowestoft Maritime Museum.
We are now open for the 2019 season.
Museum is open everyday from 10:00am to 5:00pm (last entry 4:00pm) from now until October.
Our recruitment day held on the 20th March was very successful with several people expressing an interest in helping at the museum and we have 6 new volunteers signed up to start.
