What’s on


We regret that the museum was closed for the 2020 season however the good news is that we plan to re-open on Sunday 30th May with all necessary precautions in place to provide a safe environment for our volunteers and visitors alike.



Feel free to contact us by email to felmuseum@btopenworld.com or leave a message on our answerphone 01394 674355. Alternatively find us on Facebook.


Our evening talks, normally held at Broadway House (Orwell Road) in conjunction with Felixstowe Family History Society, are now taking place via Zoom. 

Once it is safe to do so we intend to return to our normal venue, meeting on the second Wednesday of the month. (to be reviewed May 2021)
