Loads to look at and there are often interesting activities for children. We visit every time we are in Aberystwyth and the children always enjoy themselves. The cage is brilliant and has a lovely little area for children to play too.

A well thought out collection of things. We particularly enjoyed guessing the varieties of wood. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a wonderful little museum. It really takes you back in time and its collection iseems to truly reflect the history of Ceredigion. I would highly recommend a visit. There is also a lovely cafe attached to the museum.
