We stopped as we passed because we love a bit of eccentricity and we were definitely not disappointed! This is a treasure trove of nostalgia. Worth a visit. This has been a labour of love and it shows.

Not only is this enchanting and interesting place a museum, it has a covered space behind the display area where we heard poetry and music. The poetry was from a book called Ten Swansea Writers and the music was from a superb band called Trenchfoot. The atmosphere is relaxed, caring and honest. The people who run the museum are passionate... More

Seimon and Min are very knowledgeable on what is on display Outside the back at the museum is a small building showing household objects... More

We have been now to the Tin Shed twice and are still suprised about the things to find there. It is small but due to regular changes in the exhibits you keep coming back. Good place for youngsters to learn something about the war in a pleasant way. The owners are great storytellers.

Another enjoyable and fascinating visit to this delightful little museum. The saying "Size doesn't matter " is proven here in spades. It homes the most interesting and detailed war memorabilia and artifacts ... and the manikins themselves are works of art and authentic too. Seimon and Min are so friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable and went out of their way to... More
