Croeso i Amgueddfa Arforol Caergybi
The museum is a fascinating experience for the whole family. Step back in time at the oldest lifeboat station in Wales (circa. 1858), which houses a wonderful collection of exhibits telling the enthralling maritime history of Holyhead.
Situated alongside the Maritime Museum, in a Second World War Air Raid Shelter, is the very informative permanent exhibition "Holyhead at War".
There is wheelchair access, a well stocked gift and bookshop, very knowledgeable museum guides and a highly recommended cafe/licensed restaurant, the "Harbour Front Bistro".
The Museum is an Accredited Museum to Arts Council of England (ACE) national standards. This is administrated in Wales by the Welsh Government under CYMal: Museums, Archives and Libraries Wales.
We are now closed for the winter season. We reopen on Sunday, 29th March 2015. You will find us at the very picturesque seafront location of Newry Beach, Holyhead, Anglesey. LL65 1YD. A short promotional video about the Museum can be found HERE.
