Fantabulous Felixstowe Museum has opened
its doors again
Felixstowe Museum welcomes you back with some new features and a COVID secure route – follow the coloured floor stickers to maintain space and stay safe.
Opened on 30th May, ‘Last Stop Felixstowe Pier’: The advent of the railway in Felixstowe. This is our new display on the coming of the railway to Felixstowe. Did you know that when the Town station opened on the 1st July 1898 the Third class fare to Pier Station was 4d (about 2p)! Come and see our genuine ticket from that day alongside many other fascinating facts.
We are also pleased to announce our new learning trail suitable for children aged 8 years and above in conjunction with the Children’s University. Why do you think Felixstowe telephone numbers only used to have had three digits?
Our evening talks, normally held at Broadway House (Orwell Road) in conjunction with Felixstowe Family History Society, have continued through the year via Zoom. Find details of these great talks below.
From September onwards, we intend to return to our normal venue, meeting on the second Wednesday of the month.
