We called in here when stopping off at Cenarth falls. The short talk and demonstration was very interesting ...... just enough information before being able to walk around at leisure, not a big place but worth a visit.

The owner, Martin Fowler, is very knowledgeable, and gave us a brief overview of the salient points before leaving us to explore on our own. The entrance fee (with concessions) also includes the 17th Century mill behind. The museum points out that coracle-like craft have been used since ancient times, and are used in many countries of the world. The... More

A really interesting few hours. Shows you not only Welsh coracles but ones from around the world. When you enter you get a short history talk and shown how to get in and use a coracle and can have a go. Can also go into a small mill behind the museum which was in use until recently. Would also recommend... More

A fascinating place to visit. The people running the shop and museum were really nice and very informative. Our teenage son was allowed to climb into a coracle and given instruction on have to sit, paddle and fish from the coracle. The museum gave us all a fascinating insight into the history of the coracle all around the world. A... More

We were in the area and noticed that this was nearby. There is a nice little shop at the entrance if you wanted to get some gifts and here is where you can also pay to enter the museum. It is very reasonably priced and the lovely chap gave us a little introduction and also gave us the freedom to... More

Travelled some way to get here only to find it closed. The website is not easy to use. Whats more we asked at the car park across the river and was told it was the right place. The chap took our money even though he must have known it would be open. There is free parking on the same side... More

... and all collected together under one roof. A fascinating browse with an informative and friendly talk from the curator. So many stories that I couldn't do justice to them here, but well worth a visit, along with the old mill which is part of the complex. Ask about Hannah Rees and William Richards. Plus there's a lovely café next... More
