Recent Activities & News

We are delighted to announce that we were awarded with the Merit Award in the recent Suffolk Museum of the Year 2016 competition. This is a tribute to the energy and efforts of our volunteers past and present. Thanks are also due to all those who voted for us.


Our ‘open season’ started with an enjoyable muster day at the museum earlier in the year to introduce our volunteers to the new exhibitions as well as to update them on emergency procedures and health & safety issues. After the business was done, we tucked into a little lunch!


Since then we have participated in Heritage Open Day, Felixstowe Carnival, the Tidal Margins project and much more.


We have also run special activities for our younger visitors ranging from an Easter Fun day through to ‘By Royal Appointment’ where children had the chance to be knighted by HM Queen (of Landguard). Even Susan the corgi was in attendance!
