What’s new in 2021

Last Stop Felixstowe Pier

The advent of the railway in Felixstowe is our new display on the coming of the railway to our town. Did you know that when the Town Station opened on the 1 July 1898 the Third Class fare to Pier Station was 4d (about 2p)! Come and see our genuine ticket from that day alongside many other fascinating facts.

 

Step back to the ‘60s

Following the success of our ‘60s corner, this enlarged exhibition in the Felgate Room tells some of the stories of Felixstowe during that iconic decade, including a special display put on by the Felixstowe & Offshore Radio enthusiasts:

  • Take a nostalgic look at life in Felixstowe

  • Revel in the days of pirate radio (thanks to the Felixstowe & Offshore Radio group)

  • Check out ‘60s fashion

  • Enjoy the newly renovated model of Felixstowe Docks in ‘60s

 

Students of the Suffolk Children’s University now have a new learning destination: Felixstowe Museum.  Check out our special trails.

 

Finally the new interactive screen in the Turntable area will bring you memories of Felixstowe and area as told by six local people. Put on the headphones (when Covid regulations allow) and experience these stories of yesteryear.
