Lowestoft Maritime Museum and the Coronavirus

Regrettably due to Coronavirus it was decided to close the museum immediately and remain closed for the foreseeable future or until such time that it is safe to re admit the public.

The trustees and society members would like to apologise to all who had planned to visit during the summer and look forward to seeing you in the future.

Thanks also go to the volunteers who have worked hard over the winter completing the cleaning and maintenance program.

Finally the members of the society wish you the public a safe journey over the coming months and hope to see you on the other side.

Welcome to Lowestoft Maritime Museum

The Museum is now closed for the Winter. Thank you to all who visited us during the year.

We hope to see you again next year, with the museum opening at Easter.

Close to the  North Sea in Lowestoft’s lovely Sparrow’s Nest Gardens, Lowestoft Maritime Museum offers a fascinating few hours of enjoyment and discovery for all ages.

“What a wonderful record of Lowestoft’s Heritage.”

David Cleveland, Berkshire.
