I highly recommend this unique gem of an attraction, a lovingly-built museum whose owners will happily take time to tell you all about their exhibits with endless enthusiasm. There is an interesting story/history behind every wartime artefact (and how these artefacts came to be in the Tin Shed in Laugharne), and it is a really hands-on experience - I have... More

What a fantastic place. I visited on my own while the family were riding at Marros. The museum is very well laid out and the owners were fantastic giving me more or a less a guided tour of the exhibits. I had a great time sharing dits. I will definitely be back !

This place is a must-do when in West Wales! I took my mum (Who is in her late 80's) & we had a great time. I learned so much more than I had ever previously known about her wartime experiences; and also other family members. Seimon is so interesting & generous with his extensive knowledge. Will definitely return with other... More

We found this by chance as we walked along the main street. It was very interesting with a mix of genuine and copy momentos of the two world wars.The two men that run it were very enthusiastic and willing to explain all the details behind the exhibits. It's in the formative stages at the moment, with work going on at... More

Visited a couple of years ago (June 2012) and was enchanted by the place, in the centenary year of the beginning of the Great War they have added 1914- 1918 objects with the same enthusiasm and quirkiness as with Second world War objects. But this is not the sentimental stuff - this is real social history. The team are very... More

So so interesting, fascinating and the passion of all involved is contagious. A must for everyone. When we arrived, we were not sure the museum was open even though the information indicated it should be so make sure you check or knock before walking on.

Well worth the visit as the owners are very passionate about the collection and have amassed a large collection of memorabilia. The talks they did we're very informative and relaxed.

A fascinating collection of World War One and World War two artefacts in a 1930s tin shed that cost £50 to build, and a little vintage cottage in the garden. The owners,Andrew and Simon, were on hand to set the scene. A very enjoyable visit.

Me and my boyfriend are from Glasgow, Scotland and we were on holiday in Pendine for a week so one day we decided to take a trip into Laugharne for the day and visit The Tin Shed mostly because I love history and I am also a fan of 1940's fashion, hair, make-up and also how it was to live... More

Visited here with our 4 boys aged 10 -15 and my 81 year old Mum. We all enjoyed it: Mum enjoyed the nostalgia and telling the littlies about life during the war when she was a little girl; our teenagers enjoyed handling the guns, playing records on a wind up gramophone and playing the piano; husband loved the fact that...
