Brynmawr & District Museum

Looking Back Into the past since 2003

Brynmawr Museum was created by the community; it is run totally by volunteers and was officially opened in June 2003.


The museum is now in its present building, after outgrowing its original premise, due to the overwhelming support from the community.


There is a strong community involvement, with Patrons and Vice-Presidents and an active Archive Group.


There have been numberous visitors through its doors to date, including many from overseas.

Coffee Mornings

Every Thursday morning, we operate a coffee morning, which allows us all to get together and have a chat, not anly about the past, but also about the present and future.


Why not pop down to the museum on a Thursday morning (10:00-13:00) to have a chat over a cuppa. You may even find out something new about the town that you live in, be it that the spade that cut the first sod in the Comprehensive School is still as clean as it ever was or that the 1938 Eisteddfod Chair, was made by Brynmawr Furniture.


All who attend the weekly get together agree that a wonderful time is had by all, week in, week out.


Pop in - Join us for a cuppa and a chat about the past.
