We came across this place whilst visiting Carmarthen, it is a really interesting experience and the Director Andrew Isaacs was very welcoming and very informative, he is obviously passionate about what he does and he does it very well.

We arrived after they had closed but the welcome was great. They certainly know their stuff when it comes to explaining the exhibits and there's so much to see that we must return. A jewel in a tin shed.

This is a brilliant little museum. Loads to see, displayed well, all within a small area but without seeming cramped or cluttered. Make sure you check out the old cottage at the back. Very enjoyable visit.

If like us you went to Laugharne to visit the Dylan Thomas boathouse and then stumbled upon this place then I can recommend an hour of family time spent here will be worth it. Knowledgable and friendly. Well worth the visit.

Very much enjoyed the visit to the Tin Shed Experience at the weekend. The volunteers were very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable bringing the exhibition to life. The Tin Shed Experience has a brilliant collection of authentic wartime items and a definitely well worth a visit!

Like many reviewers have already said, this is not a big place at all but you will almost certainly spend a lot longer here than you think you will. The museum and 1940's cottage was fascinating and Seimon and Min were hugely engaging and a pleasure to be with. The collection of war memorabilia is very interesting and unlike almost... More

A visit to the Tin Shed in Laughne brings a wealth of surprise. Well arranged and thought our displays. The 1940's cottage is wonderful. Friendly welcome, questions answered and time given to browse the displays. Excellent!

Just enjoyed a fab visit to this hands on and interactive museum. My 14 year old son was absolutely enthralled - handling the weapons, exploring the restored standard 12 utility vehicle and nosing round the cottage in this atmospheric collection. Really good hearing the history of the museum and anecdotes of one of the owners Seimon. Recommended.

Small but perfectly formed. If only all museums were this good. Visited with my nephew and we were both enthralled with the place. Seimon was a joy to be around.
