Lowestoft Maritime Museum: The museum specializes in the history of the Lowestoft fishing fleet and early commercial activities, from the early days of sail, to steam, through to modern diesel vessels. Methods of fishing are also recorded, namely trawling and the no longer practiced art of herring driftnet fishing. Also depicted is the town's wartime association with the Royal Navy together with a fine exhibition of the evolution of lifeboats. A full scale replica of the aft cabin of a steam drifter showing the crews quarters is also on display.

There are fine collections of shipmodels and martime art, and an interesting collection of shipwrights and coopers tools.
