What’s on

Felixstowe Museum has had a busy year with a variety of events with fun activities for children, a vintage car day, book sale, etc. See Recent Activities & News for details.

 

Our evening talks programme started again in October. These informative and enjoyable monthly meetings are held in conjunction with Felixstowe Family History Society.

 

Follow this link to find out What’s new in 2017

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

  • In the Felgate room, we continue to commemorate the centenary of WW1 and highlight its impact on the Felixstowe area. There are many new items to see so, even if you have visited us before, you should find this year’s  exhibition just as interesting.

  • 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.

 

We close for the winter at the end of October so don’t delay! Find out what’s been happening at Felixstowe’s very own museum.
