Harwich Maritime Museum
Located in the former Low Lighthouse, built in 1818 as one of a pair of leading lights for the harbour entrance. An active radio link to harbour control serves as a reminder of the lighthouse's time as a pilot signal station. The museum is full of nautical memorabilia from photographs and paintings to ships in bottles and lighthouse bulbs. There are displays on the Royal Navy, including uniform and badges, and local commercial shipping. A fantastic view of the shipping activity in the harbour is obtained from the top floor.
