Posted by East Suffolk Communications Team on 15 April 2019 | Comments

On Easter Sunday (21 April) the Mayor of Felixstowe, Councillor Graham Newman, will be cutting the ribbon to officially open Felixstowe Museum for the 2019 season.

He will also be chatting with Mr Alan Downard, a 100 year old Veteran who served with the 67th Medium Regiment and was stationed at Landguard Fort.

The Museum's new exhibitions for 2019 include a large display featuring Radio Caroline, a new exhibition showcasing the 1960s and a brand-new children's area with lots of dressing up clothes for children to try on.

Housed within the Ravelin Block of the neighbouring Landguard Fort, Felixstowe Museum was once home to a submarine mining establishment. A real 'hidden'

treasure - adults and children alike can discover all sorts of amazing stuff in fourteen different rooms, from costumes and model planes, to fossils and toys.

Please come and visit!

Opening times can be found on the Felixstowe Museum website or by calling 01394 674355 (answerphone) or emailing [email protected]
