“Great for a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Well worth a visit to see some history of Merthyr in the museum, and also to catch a snack and a coffee in the café afterwards. Plenty of interesting little things to buy in the shop...great for Christmas presents! Summer months will enable you to get a tasty ice cream!!

“Back to my roots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I went to school at "The Castle" some 50+ years ago. The Museum seemed smaller, perhaps I'm just bigger !! If you're interested in Merthyr's history, the Castle Museum is a great place to visit again.

“A Beautiful Castle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

This castle has a very impressive road leading to it and a large lake in its grounds.
There is a museum inside with lots of Welsh history and also art exhibition. The café although small offers good refreshments throughout the day.
A wedding was taking place so one of the rooms was closed to the public but the grounds were beautiful even at this time of the year.
Well worth a visit.

“Brilliant and Free!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Love the museum, lots of welsh history and because it is in the vaults of the castle it has a great atmosphere.
The childrens park and gardens are also very good and on a nice day you can spend hours here.
