“Unexpected gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

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!

“A Real Joy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

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 you want something a bit different with plenty to hold your interest about life in Works War II.....this is most definitely the place to go.

“Inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

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.

“A gem in the making”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

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.
