Discover the aviation and wartime history of south Pembrokeshire, take a trip back to the 1940s and experience the restored Control Tower building as it would have been during the war years. Don a helmet, take cover and sing wartime songs in our reconstructed Stanton Air Raid Shelter, now built above ground for easy access by all. Experience our huge array of exhibits of the era in our museum collection including military uniforms, RAF maps, radio equipment, ration books, Bren gun, Enfield rifle and many, many more… Enjoy the personal testimonies and local stories of the wartime in Carew from two of our very active members now in their 80’s – Both were in secondary school in 1939! And now you can come and see our restoration progress in the newly built hanger on our Avro Anson, Thompson Fuel bowser and Fordson tractor.

This is a great little WWII control tower, that is developing every year. The wings over Carew event in August is a real treat, though very busy. Go another time to have more time to look around with out the crowds.

Absolute brilliance from the volunteers who run the tower! Very informative and so easy to listen to! Much is to come from such a little known part of history! This needs to be a huge part of British heritage! Needs to be recognised by all.

Really not too sure! If you google them! They have a web site that should have opening times on. But because it is the school holidays at the moment, they are open more than closed.
