Lowestoft Maritime Museum will reopen on Good Friday, April 15th 2022, for the season until Sunday October 30th, 10am – 5pm, with last admissions at 4pm.

Please be prepared to continue to follow guidelines regarding distances and face coverings, to ensure that both you and our volunteers remain safe.

We look forward to welcoming you back.
