Recent Accolades

Merit Award – Suffolk Museum of the Year 2016


In October we were both delighted and honoured to receive the Merit Award. 

This is in recognition of  our standing in the local community, our development as a museum and working within the constraints of an old and oddly shaped (the judges’ words!) listed building!

A huge thank to to all our visitors who voted for us and got us on to the shortlist again.


Mayor of Felixstowe’s Civic Award


In May, one of our longest serving volunteers was invited to the Town Hall to receive the Mayor’s Civic Award. This honour is given to individuals for their outstanding contribution to the community of Felixstowe. We were delighted that his long term commitment and contribution to the development of Felixstowe Museum had received public recognition in this way.


TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence


In August we were pleased to learn that we had been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. 

Our volunteers always enjoy reading the very positive reviews we receive and the level of appreciation that our visitors express. 

The green TripAdvisor flag now flies proudly over the museum when it is open to the public.
