This eclectic museum and art gallery in the gorgeous Welsh harbour town of Tenby celebrates local history and creativity.

The Story of Tenby Gallery explores local history in Tenby from the 9th century to the present day. The gallery is home to a selection of photographs and unique objects from the museum collection that give an insight into Tenby life and how it has developed over the years.

Learn about the Tenby-born mathematician who created the ‘=’ symbol, Henry Tudor’s escape from the town and how Tenby was involved in the lead-up to the D-Day landings in World War Two. Additional collections explore geology, archaeology, maritime history and piracy.

Highlights in the museum’s object collection include a penny-farthing bicycle, sedan chair, bathing machine and scale model of Tenby in 1586. While the art collections feature works by Augustus and Gwen John, David Jones, John Piper, Kyffin Williams, Denis Curry, Elizabeth Haines and Nina Hamnett.
