Owner description: Museum celebrating the heritage of Llandudno, the "Queen of the Welsh resorts", from prehistoric times to the recent past
Reviewed 16 November 2017

Hubby and I went here on a recent Wednesday afternoon (open 1.30 pm - 4.30 pm). It is situated on the same side of the road as the Queen of Hearts wooden sculpture. The museum is inside an old Victorian House painted cream. We were greeted by a very helpful and informative volunteer. It costs £2.50 for adults (no senior concessions) and £1.00 for children. Cash only payments accepted. There was a toilet on the ground floor.

We looked around the pre-historic exhibition first. We liked the 13 thousand year old jaw bone of a horse and the bronze age tools. Then we walked around the roman and medieval rooms. We liked the children's educational corner where they could try on the helmets. Then we progressed upstairs to see Chardon's collection of paintings and artistic treasures from all over the world. I liked the room replicating a traditional miner's cottage (it must have been dark and dusty in the era). The Llandudno Resort section was very interesting and we spent a while looking at all of the black and white photographs of the Victorian pier, pavillion and promenade. Hubby especially liked the scale model of the tram. Then we went into the room displaying World War 1 and 2 militaria. Hubby particularly liked the scale model of the ship.

We then came back downstairs, sat and watched a short but fascinating TV documentary about Blodwen - the 5 and a half thousand year old female skeletan found on The Little Orme in 1891. Her bones (what's left of them) are laid out in a glass case.

There was a small gift shop selling souvenirs.

This small museum is worth the small entrance fee.

I'm sure you'll be interested to know that we have some major improvements planned for the museum, including more exhibition space and a lift to the first floor. We hope to be starting work on this during the summer - keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter feeds for updates

Not a large museum, but well displayed and with super-friendly, knowledgeable staff. The highlight was the thousands-of-years-old skeleton .

This is one of the smallest museum s iv ever visited yet we spent 2hrs here.. It was full of information and photos about how Llandudno came to be I was fascinated by some of the facts. How did the orme become such a historical site and who first inhabited this higher ground. I'm not someone who seeks out museum s as a must to do but sincerely think if you love Llandudno then you will love a visit to this little treasure

found this a mixture of the valuable artifacts of the donor and other stuff about Llandudno. Brief films about eg Copper Mine led me to visit too.
