Fantabulous Felixstowe Museum is open!
There’s so much to see and do at the museum this year. Throughout the season you can revisit (or visit?) the 1980s, the decade that brought us the mullet hairstyle, shoulder pads, shell suits, leg warmers, ‘Shaddap You Face’ and ‘The Empire Strike Back’ – and also Felixstowe Museum! We first opened our doors in 1982.
For more information check out this year’s new exhibition, as featured on BBC Look East: Frankie goes to Felixstowe
There’s also a new trail for all the family – The Race for Space – and this will run until the end of October. Our other special events, for children and adults alike, are listed below and to find out about our new exhibitions check out What’s new in ’22?
