In visiting the area for the first time we are always looking for the quirky and more personal tourist spots. This turned out to a brilliant experience with the owner / guide being very informative in explaining the origins of the museum and the exhibits. If you want a sterile museum this is not the place for you, however if... More

I loved the way it was full of creativity, scrunched up bits of paper, pictures on the wall and a cosy rug. You can see why he spent time there. It was like a little mise-en-scene.

Although small the ambitions are big. Rarely does the curator offer a personal journey, the highlight of this museum. Very well done & best of luck with the future.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY LOOKS. When you see the Tin Shed it is exactly as it says, it is a Tin Shed, but what a fabulous place. We were stopping in Laugharne, and through Tripadvisor I found this place, although it is on the main road into Laugharne. You can park across the road at the church for a... More

The first thing I will say about the Tin Shed Experience is it is a place you could quite easily drive past without noticing ...but to do so would be a real shame. It is a Tin Shed filled with wonderful old artefacts from WW1 and 2. .The first thing you will notice is the staff there are welcoming and... More

We went to Tin Shed Museum last June, if was on the top of our list this year. We certainly wasn't disappointed. We was met by Simon who remembered from last year. Gave us a wonderful tour, and explained new exhibits to us. We left smiling, and still talking about our visit days later.

Visited the Tin Shed Experience on Saturday to find that the displays had been updated to encompass the D-Day and First World War Centenary commemorations. The displays are always interesting and the knowledge of the owners is incredible. The Tin Shed Experience is always worth a visit and only 20 minutes from Carmarthen.
