Lowestoft Museum collects, preserves and displays objects relating to the history of the area and its people, and promotes awareness and interest in our rich heritage.
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 artefacts 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.
The Museum is housed inside Broad House, a grade ll listed building dating from 1685, which is situated within the grounds of Nicholas Everitt Park, Oulton Broad, NR33 9JR.
It is staffed entirely by Volunteers and is open every afternoon from 1pm-4pm from April until the end of October.
Benjamin Britten (1913-1976)This year the world is celebrating the centenary of the Lowestoft boy who became one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century. Lowestoft Museum is, of course, joining in with these celebrations with a wonderful display depicting the great man's life and music.
