We have never been able to visit this museum, simply because whenever we have visited, it has always been closed.
We were privileged to have a private tour of this fascinating small museum, thanks to the generosity of one of the volunteers who gave up his time on a soggy Autumn afternoon. I'd never thought much about tin and was amazed at the complexity of the manufacturing process. The museum conveys this using a combination of old video footage and... More
This museum is unique. It is really well laid out and all the films and artefacts gave a real feel of what the tin industry must have been like. As a retired teacher I think it would be a great place to take children Just a shame that some of the Welsh/English signs were absent on the film buttons!!
A trip out with two of our children (age 2 and 3, both boys) took us to this tucked away museum. Good car parking, nicely presented grounds and buildings, excellent signage. Good going for prams and little feet. Somewhat surprised to see only one member of staff on the whole site and the visit felt very much as though we... More

The old photos and film footage were excellent., and I like the way they appeared several times so that if you were not paying attention... More
this is a unique site in the history of Wales. Go there to understand what Welsh industrial history is all about. This is the second oldest site of a tinplate works in the country.
We were planning a trip to the UK and discovered the Indusrial Museum in Wales, on the internet. We had no prior knowledge of Wales or the museum, but decided to go for a visit. The area near this museum had numerous other museums and castles and we wanted to see as much of Wales as we could while we... More
