It has recently completed a major face lift to restore its historic walled garden. Milford Haven heritage and maritime museum covers everything from whaling to modern day petroleum.

Narberth museum is filled with clever, engaging exhibits; who would have thought that a little town has so much to tell? Tenby Museum is a treasure chest of history, telling the story of a fishing and trading port that became a fashionable resort.

The Last Invasion Tapestry in Fishguard is an amazing embroidered 30 metre long tapestry that tells the story of the 1797 last invasion of mainland Britain. It took 70 women two years to complete this stitching masterpiece.
