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.
At a recent meeting of the museums trustees the question of reopening was discussed in depth with the final decision from a vote was all in favour that the museum should remain closed until 2022.
The trustees also decided that it would only be right and proper to contact all of our volunteers to ask for their opinion regarding the decision, all voted in favour that the museum to remain closed.
The decision to remain closed has been made in the name of Health and Safety for the volunteers and members of the public alike.
We would like to take this opportunity to apologise to all visitors who had planned to visit. Apologies also to the education system who had planned a visit.
For more information please check our website that will be updated regularly.
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.

The Museum will be open with free entry on the 16th 2018 September as part of the 2018 Lowestoft Heritage Open days. Normal opening times apply.
