About Us

Situated in a former submarine mining establishment, the volunteer run museum houses a collection of Royal and Merchant Navy models, tells the story of HMS Beehive and the Coastal Forces, Felixstowe and the other Haven Ports. A paddle steamer model room and artefact collection is of special interest.

In 2016 we continue with our WW1 exhibition, including naval operations from Felixstowe and Harwich Harbour.
