This page Lifeboat Museum - Welsh Slate Museum
Administered by the Royal National Lifeboat Institute, the museum traces the history of this most essential and heroic occupation through models, photographs, and historical memorabilia.
The museum is based on a collection of fine art donated by founder Francis Chardon. Today it houses displays detailing the natural history and archaeology of the Llandudno area.
A former RAF Fighter base during the Battle of Britain houses this collection of planes and memorabilia. Trace the history of RAF Llanbedr from the 1940ís to the present day, and visit a "homefront exhibition" depicting life during the War.
Fascinating museum illustrating with poignant nostalgia the pleasures over growing up over the past 150 years. Displays showcase the toys that children have used over the years and how our concept of childhood has changed. Voted Best Museum of the Year (1990) by the Sunday Express newspaper.
Museum: The Roman auxillary fort of Segontium, near present day Caernarfon, has provided some of Britain's finest archaeological finds from the Roman period. The best artefacts from the fort are displayed in the museum, which tells the story of the Roman invasion and occupation of Wales.
This narrow gauge railway has been in operation since 1865. The line used to carry slate from Abergynolwyn, now it carries tourists on a 7 mile winding journey through lovely countryside to a walking area. The railway station house houses the museum, full of engines and displays from the days when steam was king.
Without a doubt one of the world's most beloved and treasured museums. Well, OK, I exaggerate a teeny bit, but if you want to trace the history of that most British of pastimes, tea drinking, this is the place to come. Hundreds of teapots are on display, dating all the way back to 1740.
Museum housed in Victorian workshops near the huge Dinorwig quarry. There are slate-splitting demonstrations, multi-media presentations, and tours of the workshops and foundries used during the heyday of slate quarrying in the 19th century. The site also maintains the largest working watermill in Britain and four restored quarrymen's cottages
