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! Visitors can see mammoth tusks, Roman pottery, Medieval coins and cannon balls and learn about the ancient inhabitants of this region, alongside an extensive collection of Victorian and Edwardian artefacts from Felixstowe’s heyday.
Look up to see fantastic models of the planes that once filled the skies and learn about the incredible sacrifices made by wartime heroes. You can also learn about psychiatric care through the ages with the story of St Audry’s Hospital, and get an insight into the lives of the thousands of staff and patients who lived there. There are special family-friendly activities and an extensive program of evening talks on specialist subjects.
