Museum based on the Laugharne community and WWII + other bits. Amongst the usual uniforms and civilian artefacts is an Anderson shelter. The reception was great and entertaining. Well worth an hour or more browsing and chatting in this unsophisticated shed.

The Tin Shed is a must see. Very unique and well thought out by the proprietors. Interesting stories and historical content for all ages.

Humble and unassuming, this is an attraction you could easily drive by or trundle past in anticipation of a Dylan soaked Laugharne. (Not to bismirch Dylan - we are very big fans!!!) but to miss the Tin Shed Experience would be missing out on a veritable cornucopia of treasures from a bygone age. We stopped, we entered, we absorbed the... More

Wow, what an incredible look back at days gone past, and circumstances that we hope never to repeat. We 4 agree with the other positive reviews, they have said all that we were thinking during our visit in early Oct 2016. Seimeon and Min are so knowledgeable and committed to the memory of those who lived and died before. We... More

Visited the Tin Shed Experience recently. Initially, I really didn't know what to expect. We had a fantastic time. Really interesting and wonderful interaction with the curators Seimon and Nin meant that we were there for some time and left with lots of facts and dramatic memories of War. Would very highly recommend!!!!!

Didn't know what to expect, but got so much more for my money. £3 each, an hour looking round an old tin shed full of 1930/40 artefacts and was allowed to touch and feel whatever I liked. One shed held a replica 1930 house, another war memorabilia, got to see a babies gas mask ( glad I never saw one... More

There are lots of places with dusty displays about the last war or the first war. Some are really good. This one though is about looking and discussing and sharing in the memories of those who were in these conflicts. Its about looking and asking - no signs but instead a mountain of knowledge from the excellent staff. And so... More

This came as recommended to visit by a friend. This is a museum which is very much hands on and very informative, whilst being a lot of fun. Seimon and Nin were brilliant and took time to discuss the exhibits. We were expecting to be there for around an hour, but we were there much longer as we were all... More
