Is there a Coastal Forces museum at Portsmouth? I will be going there soon and thought a visit could be interesting.

The nearest thing to that is the collection displayed in the clubhouse of the Joint Services Sailing Centre which is the former wardroom of HMS Hornet.

Outside the building is the National Coastal Forces Memorial.

They have a website and you should be able to arrange a visit.

Also, Medusa (HDML 1387) is normally berthed in Haslar Marina near the Gosport Ferry and contact can be made on the website
