What’s on

Felixstowe Museum is now closed to the public until Easter Sunday, 1st April 2018. 

 

We had a busy open season in 2017 starting in early April with a fun event for children: the Great Felixstowe Museum Easter Egg hunt. Children’s activities continued with a Family Art Workshop and a very enjoyable Comics and Cartoons trail during the summer holidays.  We rounded off the season on October 28th with our ever popular Spooky Day which was booked up weeks in advance!

 

Our evening talks programme have now resumed and will continue until next July. These informative monthly meetings are held at Broadway House (Orwell Road) in conjunction with Felixstowe Family History Society. Details below.

  • 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.
