Although small the ambitions are big. Rarely does the curator offer a personal journey, the highlight of this museum. Very well done & best of luck with the future.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY LOOKS.
When you see the Tin Shed it is exactly as it says, it is a Tin Shed, but what a fabulous place.
We were stopping in Laugharne, and through Tripadvisor I found this place, although it is on the main road into Laugharne. You can park across the road at the church for a donation.
We attended with my parents both in their 80's they loved it reminiscing, they have a house set out and the shed with all sorts of memorabilia.
Simon the curator was fantastic and brought the place alive. This is not a place for older people only, children will love it as they can touch the exhibits, get involved and listen to fantastic stories. Learn the importance of film, music and pictures throughout the war.
My Dad played an old accordion that was on show, he loved it.
If you get the chance visit this place it is fantastic. We will definatly be going back, and will be taking some exhibits for them to use.
Thank You Simon please keep up this fantastic work

The first thing I will say about the Tin Shed Experience is it is a place you could quite easily drive past without noticing ...but to do so would be a real shame. It is a Tin Shed filled with wonderful old artefacts from WW1 and 2. .The first thing you will notice is the staff there are welcoming and know their stuff. The second thing is that the place is rammed full of interesting things. The third is while there is some stuff in Glass cabinets you are generally allowed and even encouraged to touch and pick things up to see them properly (Carefully mind) Nothing is labelled so you are also encouraged to ask about anything that interests you. Out the back there is another shed this time it is done up like an old house inside. Loads of interesting things to see touch and smell there too. Well worth a visit. and we will be back. Many thanks Mark and Nikki (Will dig out that Petrol can)

We went to Tin Shed Museum last June, if was on the top of our list this year. We certainly wasn't disappointed. We was met by Simon who remembered from last year. Gave us a wonderful tour, and explained new exhibits to us. We left smiling, and still talking about our visit days later.
