Welcome to Felixstowe Museum's website.

Our museum houses 14 rooms of artefacts, exhibitions and information which displays 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.

Felixstowe Museum is managed by our 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.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Latest News
