West Wales Museum of Childhood

If you want to take a stroll down Memory Lane or re-live your childhood then why not visit this lovely little museum near Newcastle Emlyn.  There are many displays of dolls and teddies plus daleks, old cars and lorries and dolls houses of many ages.  we think there is something for everyone, no matter what the weather . . .  You can have food in the tea-room, or an ice cream, or just enjoy the fresh air and the views . . . , all set in 12 acres of beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside.  Check out their website

The Museum is open all year round and celebrates 10 years in 2015 and in that time it has grown to become a popular tourist attraction and educational resource in West Wales.
