What’s on

 

We regret that the museum had to close for the 2019 season.  The safety and health of our visitors and volunteers had to take precedence.    (Oct 2020)

 

 

Feel free to contact us by email to felmuseum@btopenworld.com or leave a message on our answerphone 01394 674355. Alternatively find us on Facebook.

 

Our evening talks held at Broadway House (Orwell Road) in conjunction with Felixstowe Family History Society will resume once it is safe to do so. (to be reviewed Jan 2021)

The Kindertransport Story @ Felixstowe Museum
Jun 30 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

‘The Kindertransport Story’ as told by Elly Crichton Stuart

(a pop-up event in the Felixstowe Book Festival 2019)

 

80 years ago, in 1939, 10,000 children travelled by train from Germany to Harwich. They were adopted by families from around the UK and became known as the ‘Kindertransport’.

 

Storyteller Elly Crichton Stuart shares a story of two children, who left their home in Düsseldorf just before the outbreak of WW2,  to travel across Germany and Holland to arrive in safety in Harwich. Their parents paid £50 per child and waved them goodbye at the station, never to see them again.

 

After the event there will be an optional excursion on the Felixstowe to Harwich Ferry with Elly to hear more stories. Ferry tickets £9.    Museum admission tickets will be valid for the whole day.
