  • Great free museum with children's activities taking place when we went Saturday end of Feb Half term. My sons were interested in the WW1 trench and war film and also the mummy! Drinks machine and gift shop. In an interesting old looking building not far from car park and waterfront.
  • This is what I would call a real museum, slightly old fashioned but very interesting, visiting the mummy is a must
  • As my Grandfather has loaned alot of items to the World War 1 exhibition, I may be a little biased, however I found it a fantastic place to visit if you have an interest in that kind of thing. Definitely worth checking out! (All the items in the World War 1 exhibition listed as "on loan from Brecon Militaria collectors fair" are property of my Grandfather, Roy Garnell.
  • Decent place, but also seems like there is to much random stuff at the same time.
  • Lovely museum. Somewhere to go on a rainy day
