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...

A group of 12 of us spent a fascinating couple of hours here this afternoon. It was a real hands on experience, we were able to touch items, try on wartime helmets etc. Everyone was so kind to us and we all left having thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We want to go back next year, as they have limited space to... More

We were just passing through but decided to pay a visit to the Tin Shed and were very glad that we did! While not the hugest place the exhibits are displayed very well and the owners are are more than happy to show you items in more detail and talk to you about them. All in all - Recommended!

I'd never heard about this place. We were on holiday further down the coast in Pendine and we did a search for things to do and noticed the reviews here. By chance we spotted it as we were driving about one day and thankfully stopped off for a look ( there is parking a short walk away at the ruined... More

This small museum is tucked away in the beautiful town of Laugharne. Run by enthusiastic collectors, it is full of quirky memorabilia and fascinating recreations. Whilst we were there, visiting children were encouraged to pick up objects and the museum owner was bristling with information about everything. Go! You won't get near as much enjoyment from £3 anywhere else!

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
