“Unexpected surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

This looks fairly small from outside, and the exterior gives little away. However inside is like an aladins cave of memorabilia and exhibits, including an air raid shelter, most impressed, well worth a visit

“World War Museum - Ideal for showing children about how we used to live”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

I have been to this museum on 3 occassions the first was with the Tourism minister from the Welsh Assembly.

I was very impressed with the amount of items in each of the displays covering different aspects including Air Raids, Rationing, Evacuees, Wales at War and Woman at Work, each time I have visited there have been more improvements.

The second time I had taken 18 kids aged 8 to 16 all enjoyed themselves, and the 3rd time I was on my own.

Not the best signposted museums but worth the time looking up.
