Penmaenmawr Museum

Free to all

Located on the coast, Penmaenmawr Museum journeys through the north welsh town's history, from its prehistoric past to the present day.

Situated in the heart of the pretty coastal town of Penmaenmawr, this independent museum takes you on a journey through the history of the landscape, the town and its people using stories and objects from the ancient past to the present.

Alongside the permanent exhibition gallery, there is a rolling series of temporary exhibitions and an interactive children’s area.

What to see

The museum maintains an archive collection of over a thousand artefacts, documents and photographs that shed light on the history of the town. Highlights on display include, crockery from the first chapel built in Penmaenmawr in 1813, a photograph of one of the first shops in Pant yr Afon, quarry tiles and a 5000 year old axe-head.

What to do

The museum holds an annual programme of lectures, community events and heritage walks. Visitors can enjoy lunch in the old post-office themed coffee shop, and browse a range of gifts and homewares in the ‘Cynefin’ (Welsh for homestead) – the museum’s gift shop.

Penmaenmawr Museum is free to enter and run by volunteers. The independent community museum and registered charity is also involved in partnership projects focusing on the preservation of local heritage.
