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.
