Hi there. We are a bit perplexed about your review as we don't have any steps in Felixstowe Museum. We were wondering whether it's our neighbours at the Fort which you may have visited in 1/2 term week? We've been closed since late October but open to the public again on Easter Sunday.

As a wheelchair user the museum is easy to manoeuvre around with so much to see in a great, friendly museum. The exhibits are laid out in a clear, informative and entertaining way; really enjoyed all the model crafts as well as the social history exhibits. Museum staff are all really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Looking forward to visiting again next year.

Thanks so much Helen. We're pleased it was easy to get around the museum and it's great for others to know this. We have had criticism in the past (usually from people with the larger wheelchairs) so it's good to read that you managed without a problem. We do have a basic wheelchair available if people need it. We're delighted you enjoyed looking around and getting along with our front of house volunteers. It'll be fab to see you next year if you can come again.

This museum is the best independent museum I have ever been to! The staff are amazing, the exhibition well laid out and informative. Over the holiday days they are having a dinosaur trail (usually I believe it's owls) which was amazing fun! The whole museum is immersive, and brilliant! I was soooooo happy we stopped by!

Wow, thanks so much for your very kind comments; what a fab review! We're always happy to tell the Felixstowe story to our visitors as well as to welcome younger ones with child friendly activities. Each summer there's a special trail laid on and we have several fun days during our open season. The temporary exhibitions change over the winter too so come again and find out something new!

Fabulous museum with excellent staff, everything is labelled and explained. It has one room where the exhibits are changed to a different theme each week. There were preparations for a dinosaur themed childrens' event planned for end of July beginning of August, The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. We did not expect to stay long but were there for two hours. An afternoon well spent.

Thanks so much for putting in a review, and such a lovely one too. We're also a good port of call on a hot day as most of the rooms are cooler than outside. Well done for staying for 2 hours - what stamina! There's so much to see in our 'Aladdin's cave' of a museum; we feel we offer excellent value for money at £2 per adult
