It’s been a busy open season, starting in early April with a fun event for children: the Great Felixstowe Museum Easter Egg hunt. Children’s activities have continued with a Family Art Workshop and a very enjoyable Comics and Cartoons trail during the summer holidays. The next big event will be Spooky Day in October (details below).
Our evening talks programme will resume in October. These informative 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 to see what’s new at Felixstowe’s very own award-winning museum.
