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".
You will find us at the very picturesque seafront location of Newry Beach, Holyhead, Anglesey. LL65 1YD.
The new book "Every Picture Tells a Story of Holy Island" by Gareth Rowlands and illustrated by Julie Roberts, is available to purchase either at the Museum (until 2 November 2013) or other local outlets. For details see this LINK. The book makes an excellent Xmas present for those interested in local history and especially Holyheadians now residing elsewhere.
The television news item on the planned memorial for the Royal Netherlands Navy commemorating their service at Holyhead during WW2 can be found HERE.
The Museum is now closed for the 2013 season. We will re-open next year at Easter.
NEW! A short promotional video about the Museum can be found HERE.
