February Newsletter

Welcome to 2024 at the Harwich Museum and Lighthouse Tea Bar.

Following on from a successful 2023, we reopen on Wednesday 21st February with new exhibits on ancient history, local hero Captain Fryatt, local railways and 100 years of the Train Ferries, along with our new gallery exhibiting local artists work. However, other popular displays including Kindertransport and  Hi-de-Hi! have been retained.

Our dedicated and enthusiastic group of volunteers have worked tirelessly on the displays, as well as other improvements and enhancements to ensure that the museum is ready to reopen on time and looking its best.

We look forward to welcoming you to the museum this year to enjoy our ever-evolving displays, as well as to the numerous events and presentations that are planned.
