  • Pleasantly surprised by this place. Popped along on a rainy day with low expectations but ended up spending a good couple of hours here. Interesting little museum which is well laid out and nicely presented. Interesting museum about local history featuring exhibits relating to the towns fishing heritage, lifeboats and even the whaling industry. Very informative and interesting. Several interactive exhibits that the children really liked.
  • A really interesting visit ( Even though I was born in Lowestoft from a fishing family !! ) Will come again.
  • Interesting museum with a number of very interesting displays.
  • Great Museum with lots of things to do and great events.
  • I would put five stars but it smells a bit in one part of the building otherwise it's great :)
