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

  • In the Felgate room, we continued 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.
