Always keen to check on local history and learn, we all looked forward to visiting. Whilst there are a range of displays and mostly informative they are not matched by the entry price. If this place needs to succeed further then it will need some...More

Lovely little museum with friendly staff. Interesting portrait of a Tenby fisherman with a young girl with reading material in her hand which is unusual for the era. Entry door s valid for a year. Lovely art for sale as well.

A small but well organized museum and art gallery which features pre-historic and geological information about the area as well as history of human settlement. There are a few things to interest kids, such as hands-on displays and a tiny jail cell with original door,...More

Worth a visit. This museum is really well put together and I little bit of everything. I love the history of Tenby whilst my boyfriend loves the art. There’s plenty to see for kids too and a ticket lasts all year. Really friendly staff.
