We visited the centre during a recent visit to the area, and we were very pleasantly surprised. The whole museum and the very knowledgeable staff everything was great. You can see the mill in full working order. The highlight was seeing the 400 plus bobbin machine. Would recommend a visit.

Paid a visit to this wonderful museum on a visit short break to Carmarthenshire. Fantastically interesting working museum, plotting the history of wool , its journey from sheep to yarn/ cloth etc. Wales' rich history of the wool industry. Really wonderful space. Great Café and lovely shop. Staff very welcoming and helpful. FREE Entry ! Well worth a visit. Only... More

Well we got lost finding this lovely site but that added to our adventure of being in Wales for the first time. The car park is big and was full when we got there but luckily found someone who was leaving. Free Parking and Entry which when travelling from overseas is nice to know. Met some wonderful people when walking... More

Visited here as I wanted to see how blankets where made. Being a Welsh blanket fanatic I was excited to see what the actual process is. Warm and friendly welcome. Knowledge of the guy demonstrating the machinery is fantastic and his enthusiasm is what really makes the tour interesting. Going round here will really put into perspective the hard work... More

This was a working woollen mill until 1982, now a museum. A lot of machinery, and a lot to see. As other people have said, much more interesting than expected, and also difficult to find (check the postcode for your satnav). When we were there a former worker was on hand to explain things, and it is well worth not... More

We have finally found this museum. It took some hunting out. Signposts from the Llandeilo end were a bit strange and we seem to be taken all over the place to get there. Perhaps it was was to get you acquainted with sheep! We were very lucky to get a parking place in the main hardstanding car park as the... More

We saw the leaflet & decided to visit on a wet Saturday morning. We got a little lost following the brown signs & had to resort to asking a gentleman walking along. Once there, we found it steeped in history with great displays. Our 11year old followed the kids guide & collected the bits of wool. He enjoyed it, which... More

What an interesting museum. There is plenty to see and learn about the wool industry through the ages. We were shown the route to go round the museum before we started which was really helpful as it is not clear when you are walking round. It was good to see the machinery still being used to make the items available... More

A museum jam packed full of information, possibly too much for the group we took (11, 7, 2 & grandparents!) We guessed it was run by volunteers and we couldn't fault them, really helpful and patient with the children. Unfortunately, after following the tourist signs all the way, once you're in the museum there seems to be a lack of... More
