There is a lot to see and do here no matter the age. The museum has interactive things for children we loved playing with every thing.

If you're into a little history, this museum is a little gem. It displays, animates and video's the history of Tenby. Takes about an hour and costs £4.95 which will give you admission valid for one year.

Local museums all depend on donated collections, famous residents ... and struggle against lack of funding, but this one is disappointing, unless perhaps you live locally.

Sheltering from the rain our family came in here and was enchanted by its exhibits and art and education. Educated me on Augustus John and I day-dreamed of buying a few paintings on show. There's toys and fun for the small ones and a bit...More

A rather steep climb to this little museum is well worth it. Some good paintings, sketches by Augustus John and his wife on display. Knowledgeable, approachable staff are eager to help. I visit whenever we come to Tenby.
