Fantabulous Felixstowe Museum is now closed for the winter
After a busy and successful season, the museum doors are now closed to the general public while we work behind the scenes to develop new displays for next year as well as catching up with essential museum work and maintenance.
The office continues to be open four days a week for enquiries and research. Contact us by email or phone.
Our evening talks evenings (held in conjunction with the Felixstowe Family History Society) have returned to our normal venue, Broadway House in Orwell Rd, Felixstowe, meeting on the second Wednesday of the month. All welcome. We may soon be able to offer the option of attending by Zoom too. Find details below.
