Visit us

Felixstowe Museum houses 14 galleries displaying the military and social history of this popular seaside resort. Even the building is of historical interest as it was once a submarine mining establishment.

Our award-winning museum is renowned for its team of friendly, dynamic volunteers who are always happy to help. Their expertise is second to none and is always delivered with enthusiasm and a passion for history.

Our collections are regularly updated and there are new exhibitions each season to enjoy. Exhibitions will be previewed on our website, so check back regularly for updates on what’s new.

The Museum is located at Landguard Point, adjacent to the Dock Viewing Point area, where there is ample metered parking. The scheduled hourly Number 77 bus service from Ipswich via Felixstowe to Landguard will deliver you to our gates. You can also reach us by the foot ferry from Harwich and Shotley when operating.
