On a wet day this is a great place to explore - particularly if as we did you happen to time your visit to coincide with when they are giving practical demonstrations of the old machines working. Sound and sight is awesome!

Visited the Woolen museum on a recent visit to West Wales. A lovely attraction with great interactive exhibits for visitors of all ages. The café is well worth a mention, excellent sandwiches,and light lunch dishes all made on the premises to a high standard. Great coffee too! All in all if you're anywhere nearby this place won't disappoint!

Took our children (aged 2 and 5) as we knew our 5 year old son would love the machinery, and we weren't wrong! What we didn't expect was a beautiful cafe with a fantastic play area for younger kids, craft activities run by a very friendly staff member, and excellent facilities. I must be honest, I didn't get to see... More

Nice to see some of the machines which make up the process, many of which were running and were well explained by the staff. A shame some parts of the process are not done here as they would have been in the past. This is the national woollen museum, so I would expect it to show the whole process. There... More

Me and my girlfriend enjoyed the museum very much. It is packed full of information and there are lots of clear signs to guide you round the areas of the museum. We stopped in the cafe for a pasty and a cup of tea after looking round the museum. The food was excellent and not badly priced.

Visited, with family of various ages, on a wettish day in August. Excellent, organic cafe and a really fascinating guided tour. Interested, informative and chatty staff, free to get in, free parking, nice shop and nothing not to like.

Lots of interesting exhibits and the demonstration we caught the end of was very insightful. Did end up interrupting someone who was filming but there were no signs to indicate this so how were we to know? Think this was more down to the film crew than the museum though.

I live close to the museum and still find it great for rainy day activity. The coffee shop ofrfers plenty of homemade fare and decent hot drinks while the museum itself is staffed with helpful, knowledgable staff. There are regular demonstrations of the machinery and loads of stuff to interact with. If you go when it's busy (public holidays, etc)... More

We pre-planned to go to the wool museum on our recent holiday, its a great rainy day activity (it was pouring down when we went). Its very intactive for the kids you can feel wool, textiles and make pictures, in the cafe they have lots of toys to play with. The demonstrations of the machinery are amazing to see in... More
