Felixstowe Museum

Explore the fascinating artefacts and collections of Felixstowe Museum, which brings alive the military and social history of this seaside town.

Housed within the Ravelin Block of the neighbouring Landguard Fort, the building was once home to a submarine mining establishment.

The museum is managed by a team of friendly volunteers who are always happy to help. Their expertise is second to none and is always delivered with enthusiasm and a passion for history.


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. There are also special events, learning activities and new themed exhibitions each season to enjoy.

Beehive Cafe serving cakes, snacks, toasties/paninis, hot/cold drinks and lunch platters.
