What’s on

Felixstowe Museum volunteers have been busy over the winter setting up new exhibitions, renewing and refreshing other areas as well as undertaking maintenance.

 

The season opened on Wednesday 12th April with a fun event for children: the Great Felixstowe Museum Easter Egg hunt.

 

Other special events have been organised throughout the season including a Family Art Workshop and a Comics and Cartoons trail during the summer holidays.

 

Our evening talks programme continues until July and will resume in October. These informative and enjoyable monthly meetings are held in conjunction with Felixstowe Family History Society.

  • In addition you’ll notice changes in other galleries including the Wiseman (RAF) room, Landguard room, etc.

  • In the Felgate room, we continue to commemorate the centenary of WW1 and highlight Felixstowe and area at War. The emphasis is on action in 1917. There are new displays to pique your interest.

  • Retained for a further year:  the poignant photographic installation by a local photographer honouring the WW1 Fallen named on Felixstowe’s War Memorial. If you haven’t already seen this, do try to come along; it’s on display in the main corridor.

 

Come along and find out what’s been happening over the winter at Felixstowe’s very own award-winning museum.
