Notes

Children enjoy the Trewick Owl Trail - find out where the owls have roosted this year!  We are also a learning destination for students of the Suffolk Children's University

We have retained out special exhibition: Frankie Goes to Felixstowe -  A celebration of the 1980s in Felixstowe and beyond including local social history.

New for 2023:  

  • Reflecting on the development and history of our near neighbour, the Port of Felixstowe - in the newly refurbished 'Port Room'.
  • The 70th anniversary of two important events for the town, the 1953 floods and, as we anticipate the coronation of HM King Charles III, we take a moment to reflect on the coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II, also in 1953. 
  • Our brand-new The Beehive Cafe serving a great selection of cakes, snacks, light lunches as well as coffee & teas.
