We just had to visit this private war time collection. We had concession tickets at £3.50 each which was a bit of a saving. This collection has been very thoughtfully put together and displayed. The entrance fee was very good and young children would find...More

Not a big museum but worth a visit if you are looking for something to do whilst in Llandudno. Not somewhere I would make a special day trip to .

We found this little gem in a side street. It is well maintained and full of interest for all generations. We all need to be reminded what life was like in the 1940 s and1950 s.

Having been brought up in a town that suffered 85% damage during the May Blitz, this was a reminder of what my mother went through. It should be compulsary for all school children.

Hidden away in a back alley, you are transported back to the 1940s. The announcement of war through to all the preparations householders needed to make, everything is portrayed in a wholly immersive experience. Definitely recommended!
