We bought a combined ticket to go around the maritime museum too which is next door above the coffee shop. You are issued with a device to listen to various characters stories around the museum with displays on two floors.

Although quite small, this museum tells the story very well of how Amlwch, and Parys Mountain became the centre of the copper mining industry. It's very well laid out, and a good audio guide is provided.

Had an absolutely awsome time walking around the old copper mines, we live not far away and was easy to find. Went into Amlwch afterwards, Found the museum in Amlwch a little on the pricy side, £14.50 for 2 adults and 1 children.
