For anyone interested in the maritime history of this part of North Wales, this is a great place to visit. I discovered a lot about a sailing ship on which a great-uncle of mine was chief officer before the first world war.

I stumbled upon the museum whilst looking for the tourist info centre (gone). The 10 min video explaining the history of Porthmadog is worth watching, but the exhibits are run of the mill. Not sure if it’s worth the £2 entrance fee.
They do however have some tourist info leaflets as do Tesco at the he other end of town.

Surprisingly good local museum with good range of exhibits telling the story of the harbour. Helpful staff and entertaining video. £2 entrance fee well worth it.

Amazing little museum run by volunteers.

There's tons of maritime history in there and the 2 gentlemen were amazing.

Would go back just to sit there and hear more of their stories.

Lovely museum with lots of quirky exhibits and information about the history of Porthmadog, slate industry and maritime connections. Well worth a visit.

Takes about an hour to go round but some good and interesting exhibits and reasonably priced. Worth a walk round.

Friendly and informative staff. Gave a good insight into the local slate history and how it was transported.

We popped in here having read about it on trip advisor - what a little gem. The two gentlemen on the desk (both volunteers) were really helpful and chatty, and extremely knowledgeable. The displays were very well presented and informative, and it is definitely worth a visit
