My family and i visit here every year as my Grandad served in the royal naval patrol service during ww2. It is a fantastic museum with so many interesting facts, pictures and memorabilia. The volunteer staff that are there make you feel very welcome. I recommend anyone that visits lowestoft to stop by here and have a look as you won't be disappointed.

Considering the museum started with nothing it’s amazing to see firsthand the artefacts and information that have been donated. The friendly staff were very knowledgeable and helped my wife find information on her fathers service during WW2, not easy when you are looking for information on converted trawlers and other kinds of mine sweepers.

Our visit to the Sparows Nest Gardens in Lowestoft gave the opportunity to pay homage and salute the Royal Naval Patrol Service, where the 2385 names officers and men are remembered close to the harbour, in 16 clusters,in alphabetical order, missing in action, with no known grave, save the sea.The Commonwealth Commission is responsible for this WW2 1939-46 unique monument. Many of these heroic lost members of the Royal Naval Patrol Service- that successfully kept secure the English Channel and North Sea , were former Lowestoft trawler fishermen,who were encouraged and responded to the defence and freedom of the realm.

Brilliant place to visit, plenty of photos, and well researched history of the naval fleet from Lowestoft!! We went to find my husbands grandfathers history as he had been on the minesweepers for the North Atlantic convoys. Very helpful volunteers!!!!!! Would be an excellent day out especially if it's a rainy day!! It's situated in Sparrows nest park, so has plenty of things to do and coffee shops and restaurants
