This is really worth a visit. The helpers are hugely experienced, friendly and knowledgeable and the exhibits themselves are very interesting and hands-on. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Excellent place to visit. Unlike many other museums, you can actually pick things up and touch them which is so important for children. The volunteer was very knowledgeable and told lots of interesting stories. An amazing collection, some of it reminded me of my dear gran!

This isn't any old tin shed.....it's the best tin shed we've been inside! Much praise has been lavished on this brilliant 1940's military/social history museum and all of it well deserved. We spent over an hour and a half looking at the exhibits and talking to the knowledgeable Seimon. What a clever idea to create a museum out of their... More

We visited Laugharne for the day and being out of season it was very quiet. As we approached the Tin Shed it appeared to be closed, but just as we were about to leave the door opened and Seimon appeared. He greeted us and led us to the period "cottage" at the back. After browsing around there we came back... More

We visited this due to the reviews. Anything with military history is of interest to us but this was more.......there is a "shed" at the back of a former garage that is "dressed" as a home from the 1940s, the calendar was 1942, the year my mum was born. As we looked around there was the sound of a plane/Merlin... More

This is an absolute delight - one place you cannot afford to miss. The stories and history and the filming that has taken place in the little "Tin Shed" unbelievable. Don't miss it!

We were camping nearby and visited this attraction after a recommendation, My partner and I found this place very interesting and the enthusiasm of both the owner, Andrew and Seimon made the visit informative. During our time there Seimon spent time explaining the philosophy behind the attraction and we left feeling that we would return one day. One highlight of... More

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.
