Welcome to Holyhead Maritime Museum
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".
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.
Click on NEWS to see details of the unique DVD illustrating Holyhead's maritime heritage, now on sale at the Museum and other outlets. Use the link to also checkout details of our latest local history talk.
The Museum is now open for the 2014 Season (Tuesday - Sunday, 10.00 to 16.00)
Unfortunately due to increased maintenance and running costs we have had to increase admission charges for the 2014 season. However, on the last Saturday of each month we will be offering free admission for all Holyhead residents. Please provide proof of residency.
