We got lost and discovered this little gem, small collection of exhibits with information about the port and area and lovely latte and cake in the cafe, well worth calling in

A small museum containing a limited display of maritime artefacts including model ships and information about the history of the port of Amlwch. Entry fee comes as part of the cost of visiting Copper Kingdom and is pricey at £7.50 per adult
