“This little gem is a must visit if you have any interest in the bridges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

This little gem of a museum is tucked away in the old church hall and offers a unique interpretation of the history of both bridges and the town of Menai Bridge. Shouldn't take too long to look around and I would suggest then taking a walk down to the bridges to see their spectacular setting and to fully appreciate the feat of engineering that went into their design and construction. There are also weekly boat trips to the bridges from Beaumaris which give an extra special view of the bridge from underneath!
