“A glimpse of the past!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

This small museum and art gallery is run by some of the most delightful ladies you could imagine!
It costs £4.00 for adults as it not owned by the National Museum of Wales. That is money well spent as the ticket lasts for a year. Well worth a visit.

“Brilliant, privately owned museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This is well worth a visit, a well presented history of the area and of Tenby itself. It begins from the start of the earth and looks at geology and the development of man, then there is a local history of Tenby.

“spend a little time here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

The museum is interesting but is not enough to hold you for long. There was an interesting film running about the history of Tenby.
