Set in a grade ii listed building and located in the beautiful setting of Nicholas Everitt Park on the banks of Oulton Broad, Lowestoft Museum offers a window into the history and heritage of the surrounding area.

The Museum is probably best known for its important collection of 18th-century Lowestoft Porcelain but there are many other treasures to see, including displays of locally found fossils and artefact's relating to early man (Pakefield Man dating back 700,000 years); local archaeological displays of objects from Roman and Anglo-Saxon sites; exhibits relating to HMS Lowestoft and HMS Mantis and Lowestoft as a fishing port; change and development of local industries; well-known characters connected with Lowestoft such as Benjamin Britten and George Borrow; a Victorian room setting with domestic items of the period and a cobbler's shop; a Doctor's surgery and an office before the age of computers; a display of old Toys; items relating to WW1 and WW2.......and many more interesting things.

We have loan items available for schools and can open for groups at other times by special arrangement. We also have a project for Under 5's based at Lowestoft Museum, called ‘Time for T'. It is activity-based using the theme of tea and tea parties, the children are encouraged to develop their imaginative, creative and speaking skills. The project equipment includes an activity picnic basket, activity sack and museum based themed books which may be borrowed. A tour, by museum staff, of the museum may then be done to complete the experience.
