Recent Activities & News

We are delighted to report that in February we were awarded with the 2018 Best Small Visitor Attraction at the prestigious EADT/EDP Norfolk & Suffolk Tourism Awards ceremony in Bury St Edmunds.  This came soon after hearing that we had received the 2017 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence  and learning that the museum had again been awarded Full Accreditation status from Arts Council England.

 

Over the winter months our volunteers updated and refreshed many areas of the museum. We’ve been joined by  a new group of Felixstowe’s Air Cadets who have enjoyed volunteering their time in the RAF and Model rooms as well as setting a new owl trail for this year’s younger visitors. We hope that they will continue to volunteer over the summer months so they can share their expertise with our visitors.

 

More news will follow as the season continues although do consider voting for Felixstowe Museum’s Object of the Year 2018 in the AfSM Summer competition https://suffolkmuseums.org/museum-object-of-the-year/      The object we have entered is our building!  The Submarine Mining Establishment is believed to be the last one standing in UK, possibly the World.
