We visited the museum earlier this month and had a very pleasant experience. The staff were friendly and the museum although fairly small was fascinating.

This little museum is run by volunteers and is a little gem in the main street.There is lots of history to read and exhibits to look at.It is a little dated but then its history ! The gentleman in there when I visited was very helpful and gave lots of extra detail and very polite.It only costs 50p to visit and its nice to see the history of Porthcawl and surrounding area rather than just the local Porthcawl Funfair.So if you fancy a half hour out of the sun ( when its out .... lol ) and want a bit more of local history then pop in with your 50p !!

Even though it is small it is informative. The volunteers are friendly and nice. It is only fifty pence so worth a visit.

The museum is run by volunteers who show great enthusiasm in preserving their town's history.
The displays tell that story. The stewards on duty were extremely helpful and welcoming.
They explained that a brand new exhibition commemorating WW1 in partnership with the Imperial War Musem will open in April 2014. I wish them well as this project should update what is my only criticism that some of the displays are tired.
