This was my 3 lifeboat station in 2 days and one of the best, dog friendly and full of history; the gentlemen who was on duty was a gem of information, great Tamar class boat on display, a must visit in Anglesey
The RNLI has a huge history of bravery here, and the new multi million pound Lifeboat Station, together with the new lifeboat and inshore boat, is well worth a visit.
There are excellent examples of wood carving and clear and concise explanation about the lives of its two famous occupants.The gardens are lovely to wak round and to top it all a really great tea shop.
views down the straits are second to none..lovely little cafe with great food at very reasonable prices....the other big bonus is its part of the national Trust.
Eric gave us a complete guided tour and explained about all the exhibitions, he was so knowledgeable and friendly and took lots of time with my son too which was lovely.
We came away with our heads full of information and great admiration for the folk behind these museums and for all the lovely volunteers who give up their time so that we can enjoy the visits, as we did today.
Superb collection of exhibits in the museum, a great tea room with massive choice of locally sourced produce, and attentive staff to make your visit informative and entertaining.
Well worth a visit if your in the anglesey area, as it's good for value, and a gem of a museum, with a truly wonderful array of vehicles and memorabilia
An excellent array of memorabilia and historical artefacts, together with live events that provide an outstanding picture of the history of Ceredigion and Aberystwyth.
We had an emotional visit with happy memories of visiting the cinema back in the 1950’.This is worth a visit as it shows how Aberystwyth and the surrounding area was in the past.Staff were friendly and helpful wit...

Most museums let you view the exhibits from a discreet distance ...the knowledgable and friendly museum staff encourage you to get up close and immerse yourself in the smells history and workings of the aircraft.
The volunteers are very friendly and welcoming, and show their knowledge and enthusiasm, encouraging questions and really engaging with the visitors.

... marvellous, staff are great and some of them can tell you great stories, the Sunderland cockpit is a basic simulator and worth ago, easily spend some quality time and some Star Wars Millennium Falcon trivia to.
Full of fascinating exhibits and ‘touchy-feely’ things to explore (even a mock up Sunderland cockpit you can sit in and watch a wide multi-screen display of the aircraft taking off and landing).
We could see the Castle on the Hill - Dylan's "Brown as Owls" Castle and walked along the path to his Writing Shed (actually a garage) filled with memorabilia and then on to the Boat House, Dylan and Caitlin's fin...
There is a free car park nearby and from there a beautiful walk along the estuary to the Boat house, there are some steep steps from the estuary side but it is well worth the effort.

The farm home of the Welsh Poet Ellis Humphrey Evans, best known by his bardic name of “Hedd Wyn” The Home has been restored by the Snowdonia National Park Authority and now includes a welcome Centre in the old co...
We went because of Hedd Wyn but came away moved by the story of his family and community as a whole - & amazed by the dedication of the family in preserving the farm as it was during the bard’s lifetime.
Great staff, informative and some interactive exhibits telling the wide and varied history of the town and surrounding area's.
Some very interesting history about Porthcawl and well worth a visit if you’re in the town.
Through numerous artifacts, information boards and excellent, realistic model displays you can learn all about the stages of Milford Haven's development from a whaling station to the present.
Then afterwards take a walk around the waterfront where there is some nice shops and cafes, with a traditional sweet shop oppositte the museum which is well worth a jorney back in time.
Well preserved castle with some good signage to help you understand the castle history , the added bonus is what at first feels like a small museum which is interesting but then unfolds as you go deeper into the h...
The museum is free too, and has a wealth of great exhibits - from country life and a stuffed turnspit dog to a display about the peace women at Greenham Common, and a fantastic show of the contents of a greengroce...
The museum of local history and antiquities packs in a surprising amount of variety and information given the limitations of space and is clearly an excellent resource for schools and residents alike.
Along with the usual Gallery merchandise of cards, books etc they had very affordable glass works by local artists, great little gifts like salt from Anglesey and shampoo etc made locally.
With an emphasis on agricultural history, the hard-times our forefathers endured are vividly reflected in a history through objects from the era when they toiled out in the fields and earned a living skilfully wit...
Each room focussed on a different part of Usk's rural heritage from farm equipment to a blacksmith's workshop to a home as it would've been in the past.
It was educational but also had a small farm area, park, arts and crafts, games, vintage games, a Punch and Judy show as well as an Alice in Wonderland themed Easter event that included a tea with Alice and the Ma...
Enjoyed an excellent day in the heritage centre, such an informative tour of the mill, absolutely fascinating and then we made some fabulous bread with the flour that had been milled on site.
The depth of local history displayed there is amazing, the story of the ‘Wells’ together with the farming audio feature take this small town back to Victorian times and earlier.
I visited this special heritage centre with a group of ladies from Gorseinon Merched y Wawr and really enjoyed our visit to the exhibition located in this beautifully presented former chapel.
The gentleman talking about WW2 and the role of the ARPs was also very interesting and great with the children answering all their questions.
The play area was great fun especially all the tunnels, also ride on tractors and soft play barn.
My 10 year old loved the exhibition upstairs and the game on the wall
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here, the wonderful volunteers were friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the textile industry in this area, as well as the preservation of the museum.
The volunteers are passionate in keeping this history alive with spinning and weaving displays and are informative, knowledgeable and friendly - we learnt a lot.
The museum staff were wonderful, helpful and informative, the exhibits were displayed tastefully, with wonderful information boards explaining the history of the town through the ages.
We haven't been inside the museum yet, but we love taking a walk around the entire park, stopping off at the brilliant children's play area and pausing to see the ducks (and one goose) that live in the pond.
amazing the staff were so informative and easy access as I am disabled.The restoration is amazing well worth a visit
What a piece of history, found by accident!
We have been to Anglesey many times before, but knew little of the history of the two bridges which connect the island to mainland Wales.
History of the Bridge
We visited Nefyn on a rather drizzly day and it was a wonderful oasis of calm and great source of information on why Nefyn had ben such an important major player in seafaring on the Llyn.
Visited with friends from Manchester to give them a feel of the history of Nefyn especially its association with sea, whether local fishing, ship building or the number of sailors/sea captains from Nefyn.
