Nice little museum, very interesting and worth a look in with the kids as they have activities for them to complete and artifacts and displays aimed at children.

We recently visited with the kids on a wet and windy afternoon. The staff were very friendly and helpful, just as our friends had told us when they went with thier 3 kids last August. There are some interesting exhibits and nice works of Art. Some produced by local children. It can not compare to the huge national museums but it does give a flavour of the history of the beautiful little resort.

During our holiday at Pendine, we visited Tenby for a day. The sun was shining, the beach looked golden and the sea was a lovely blue colour. There were lots of shops to look round and your everyday grocery stores. Plenty of places to sit in to eat and drink too. Tenby is a really stunning place and would love to visit again!

We went for a walk round the museum and art gallant. It’s not the biggest museum in the world , but it contains some nice things. Their are some lovely paintings , and a few busts. The staff are lovely and very informative of both their museum and art gallery, but also other local attractions. Well with a visit, and not that expensive. It also contains a very nice gallery in the loo , by the local children’s school .
